It is amazing how much sewing you can get done with no small people wanting food or having to sort out arguments etc. I made a Clothkits dress for each of the girls. Here is Eva 'modelling' hers. I am glad I made a size 4, I don't think a 3 would have fit for long.
I made myself a Schoolhouse Tunic. Before I left I read every review and looked at every picture,but despite the fact that most people who have my shape needed to alter the pattern quite a bit I thought it might magically fit me. It didn't and I think if I didn't have people helping me alter it it might have been tossed aside. I cut out the largest size based on the bust measurements. It was humungous and in the end I took it in quite a bit. If I make another one I will probably cut between a 10/12 and a 14/16. I took out the back pleat and the extra fabric completely and then sewed some elastic at the back on the inside to bring it in even more. I added an inch or two to the length as I cut it. I am glad I perservered as I love it. It is a really comfortable tunic.
