Sewing up a hem, running out the door...

R.I.P. Style Patterns - once one of the big top four pattern companies.  Luckily their patterns can still be found in second hand shops...

Cutting it fine - finished this dress ten minutes before we left for church! 

 

Found the comfy cotton fabric at a charity shop, already pre-washed and ready to sew. 

 

Style patterns are now defunct, but this classic sheath dress from 1991 hasn't aged too badly.

 

Had better start cutting out next week's dress now! 

Fabric cost $3 I think, so the most expensive part of this dress is probably the zipper!
