    I think this is my favourite picture of you Eimear – you look so natural and stylish head to toe in me-mades. Lovely job – such skills in transformation and what a sense of satisfaction you must have taking something about to be thrown and making it in to classy evening wear. Respect!

      Ah, thank you Aimee! I am having a strange teenage throwback summer as I seem to be having various meet-ups with people I hadnt seen in a long time and in some cases since school! Glad I made the effort for this one, as it was a great night! the other teenage throwback was that I used run up stuff to wear that night when I was in school/college, and this time I was at it again, except this time my finish was way better!

        Wow that’s so impressive that you used to run up an outfit to wear on an evening back when you were in college. Such fantastic skills you have – I do wish I had discovered sewing way back when. Mind you if I had, I’d probably need a storage container for all my clothes!

    when I said run up…. they were really rough….. I favoured the batwing sleeve style (2 seams) or sleeveless dress with wide neck and would wear a big belt for shaping and there was also the chance that matching thread was never used…………….. whereas these trews were so much better made so I was ‘patting myself on the back’ with this one!
