Back home after a terrific cruise to the Canary Islands, Madeira and Vigo (Santiago de Compostela), Spain. All my new dressmaking has now been road(sea)-tested. Regretfully some items have been found wanting and are therefore listed for sale on eBay. Hopefully they will sell and provide funds for more dressmaking. My favourite items were the Prima dress 46, the second nautical themed blouse combined with the 4-gore circular skirt, the “Loralie” blouse in Truro fabric and the Variations on a theme Simplicity 2886 Blue Tulips dress. The Cherries print shoes have also been listed for sale as I only managed to walk in them for half-an-hour, those giddy heights of 4.5″ heels are not the most appropriate shoes to wear on the “high seas”!
