Made a dress



Butterick 5145 made up in a yard and a half (no wastage) of slubby 80s raw silk off Etsy that seems to have been tea dyed.  In real life, where I and the dress transcend this image, it is classic 80s The Cloth style textile design that has a certain lustre and fall.  What you can't see is the beautiful Victorian seal etched into glass set in filigree brass round my  neck that my husband bought for my birthday.  How constantly surprisingly he knows me well.

Well thank you! The locals are probably gossiping that I am 'on day release from hospital, you know' but I am very happy with my new dress. It has pockets.
