this week i've been on a mission to sew a dress that my belleh actually fits into.
i picked this fabric up (approx 6m) about 5 years ago for $4 from an op shop (i think it may have been a sari previously?) and it has, what looks like to be, colourful little coffee beans all over it! the pattern i got for almost free at a market.
i shortened the sleeves and length a bit and added bias trim to the sleeves as well as the neckline. i really like this pattern and might even try to make the winter version of it some time.
i'm hoping i will be able to wear it after baby is born with a belt at the waist.
(don't our manuka trees look fabulous?)
