Away from my machine but still thinking about it

I am away at beautiful Burleigh this weekend catching up with friends and family. The only problem is that I am having withdrawals. I am mid-project having cut out a night dress for my mother. I am now dying to get behind the machine and finish it off for her. It is
My first time sewing for someone else and first time sewing night wear. I am totally motivated to get this done as I saw an amazing white voile with fluro yellow spots in Spotlight last week. I want to make my own nightdress now! This pattern looks super easy. Given how light weight the fabric is, I think I will need to use French seams. The yoke / bodice is self lined of course so the finishing will just be on the side seams. Easy peasy.

This morning we are heading off to the Burleigh car boot sale so hoping we might find some hidden treasures!

More later 🙂 A poolside coffee calls me. My morning project is to source some inspiration for By Hand London’s newest pattern Flora. What are your thoughts? Please share!
