Linen - Cotton Blend Shift Dress

A MCBN post 






This is a lovely dress which can be made in a variety of fabrics , the pattern even shows an option which has a lace overlay.

To make this dress I chose a linen- cotton blend fabric. Linen can often be a nightmare to wear because it creases so much but add cotton to it and the problems disappear. This is a very easy fabric to sew, it has a great texture and lends itself to a great variety of garments - skirts and tops and jackets as well as dresses all look fabulous made in this fabric. It is bright and cheerful and I can't wait to wear it.

Unfortunately this design has been so popular that it has sold out, but there are lots of other choices so head over to the Minerva Crafts Website and read my post in full and see the fabric options The New look 6261 dress

Thank you for reading this.

Sweet Pea Machine Embroidery Australia Cutest Cupcake Collection

A Jaycotts Post


Sweet Pea "In the Hoop" Machine embroidery designs.


A while ago I was fortunate to meet the Sweet Pea team and see their amazing designs close up.





Sweet Pea were invited by Brother UK to do a roadshow in the UK and Germany and we were very fortunate that Jaycotts was chosen as one of the few locations to host an event promoting their incredible in the hoop embroidery designs


Cutest Cupcake Collection

Since then Jaycotts have been able to stock three of their designs to sell online and in the store. 
If you have not come across Sweet Pea before then you are in for a treat. This is embroidery at its most exciting, the designs are mostly made entirely in the hoop,and what stunning designs they are!
