It's Australia Day in this neck of the woods, so a public holiday today for yours truly, hooray! Even if it is 34 degrees celsius and I'm wasting it inside in the air conditioning watching movies, sure beats the office!
Just a quick one today - another Simplicity 2444 which I made for a wedding last year. I picked up this vintage barkcloth from the Paddington Antique Centre for a song, ohhhh those colours, I really dig this fabric.
Not much to say about the construction of this bad boy considering I've already made it in the past, it went together very quickly.
I am ruling the invisible zips these days. Although they sure are expensive at my local Lincraft at $4.00 a zip! Ridiculous. My lovely friend Megan who is currently residing in Bali brought a bunch for me over on her last trip back, at only 70c each, now that is more like it! You really have to work at keeping sewing a thrifty hobby here in Australia.
That about wraps it up for me, see you back here real soon! x
