Refashions, Pattern Magic and wedding dresses

I've been so slack this last week! please forgive me.
It's just been so busy here I haven't had time to compose blog posts, let alone make anything.
This week I'm trying to get back into it.
I'm looking for two armchairs for my computer room and I want to reupholster them myself - so I've been scouring Ebay and freecycle for something suitable - no joy yet!

I decided to attempt something out of the pattern magic book and have settled on the vanishing lapel.

Figuring out the instructions was a little challenging, but I think I've got the gist of it. need to complete the muslin tomorrow. watch out for the final piece later this week.

I also popped into Morpeth today to meet a friend, on the way in I called at the charity shop and picked up a floor length dress - ripe for refashioning, look out for that one too.

I also met up with a friend, whose wedding dress I'm going to make to discuss design ideas with her. can't wait to get started on that one!!!!!
