Guess who’s going fabric shopping tomorrow….

Yeah folks. Me!!

Stevie over at Beebee’s Vintage Dress is coming into town tomorrow, and she’s organising a fabric excursion to Goldhawk road. Goldhawk road is only 20minutes from my house so I shall be pushing the bump all the way there at 11am.  For anyone who has suddenly decided they want to make it, we are meeting outside Goldhawk Road station at 11am, and attacking the shops from 11:30am.

I seem to spend my time buying fabric these days, and not actually sewing anything. Hopefully that will soon change. It is becoming quite obvious that I need more clothes. I wore a rather sorry looking combination to work yesterday, and  that prompted the ever silent Mr.Dibs ( silent in all matters concerning dressing), to ask me what the frack I was wearing. Today I tried my best to wear something less frumpy, and got silence from Mr.Dibs. So he either did not notice what I was wearing, or it passed muster.
The dress I’m wearing is a size 10 dress, and there’s a very good reason why I am standing sideways. It looked obvious from the front that the dress was made for a smaller person. So yes, I really do need to go fabric shopping tomorrow.
I cut my hair as well. I did that when I was going through the first 4 months of being sick, and looking after my  hair was the last thing on my mind. Now that its getting pretty cold here in London, I’m starting to regret that moment of madness. Tomorrow I intend to step out in a wig. Give the excursion some 70’s vibe. Oh yes!

Enjoy your weekend folks!!

    Ah, you and your bump look lovely! Good luck with the fabric shopping. Have you seen this blog, polkadotoverload? Her baby is quite big now but she did quite a lot of maternity sewing and planning. If you look at her posts tagged maternity you can see them all, maybe get some inspiration? I found it fascinating to look at someone else's approach!

    Congratulations! What wonderful news! And Vogue 1179 is a great dress to use as maternity wear. It sews up fast and will grow with you!
