Last Sunday whilst looking around a car boot sale Chris and I spotted an elderly gentleman trying to get rid of a few rolls of pretty looking fabric. I think he was having trouble trying to sell them due to there being so much on one roll, but to me that is just perfect! For 20 pounds I managed to get approximately 10 meters of beautiful red tartan, extra lovely for these ice cold months. There is something about tartan that warms my heart so I instantly feel head over heels in love with this particular fabric.
I have been an aspiring dressmaker for longer than I can remember and I feel like now is my chance to get down to making a beautiful frock especially for Christmas day. I am very determined for this to happen so hopefully once I have finished making it I shall post a photo of me wearing it for you all to see.
I have been gathering a few ideas for what style I would like it to be. Here are a few of my inspirational photos I have found on Pinterest. All I have to do now is find a nice pattern and then get down to some sewing. Exciting stuff!
