Tee hee, you're the same year as me! :-) I've been toying with the idea of cullottes but haven't been brave enough yet..... You're inspiring me to give them a go though!

Oooh, that's scrumptious! I love how it matches your Pendrell blouse so perfectly. So, so gorgeous!

Cute! That Sorbetto is just so lovely and happy it makes me smile. :-)

Great job! The shirt looks fantastic, and I love the details and the story behind it. Well done! :-)

Love it! As always, you've made a stunner. :-) Great pic of the two of you recreating the scene - looks like it would have been heaps of fun to do!

Oh Mena, you poor thing! 12 hours?!! :-( The dress looks absolutely gorgeous on you, though! Hopefully after the pain of the fabric has died away you'll come to love it and wear it! (Or do something to the skirt issue so you can handle wearing it without always being conscious of the part you hate?!) I've always wondered about sewing with chiffon - it just seems tricky, so I've steered clear of it, while wondering at the same time if I was being unfair on the fabric and maybe it wasn't all that hard to work with. After reading this, though, I think I'll be steering clear of chiffon for the rest of my life! Eek!

My one is here: http://macskakat.wordpress.com I blog about my sewing adventures, which these days seem to largely be what I make as Sew Weekly challenges! (Plus some pattern and fabric finds thrown in for good measure.)

Guess I'm a shark as well - as soon as I started reading about this challenge I was like, yeah, I wanna do that, too!!! Eep. Can't wait to see what you make! :-)

Oh, this is so cute! And brings back memories of Snugglepot and Cuddlepie as well - we had one of those books when I was a kid, they're adorable stories and the illustrations are so lovely! Thanks for bringing backing those memories. :-)

I have a small collection of hankies, and used to carry them around. Not quite sure why I stopped carrying them, actually..... My mother used to have a lovely carved wooden box, filled with hankies for her and my father, in all sorts of nice designs. I used to love looking through it when I was a kid, so I've always had a bit of a soft spot for hankies. :-)

I'm leaning towards simple and elegant. Long, simple at the front of the skirt with a bit of a fishtale/train at the back, either strapless (although that may not be allowed?) or with little cap sleeves.

I've been meaning to learn to crochet, as I want to make some of the ultra cute amigarumi creatures I see everywhere! I even bought a 'learn to crochet' book. One day I may open that book, and start to learn. One day.....

Gorgeous! And wow, I can't believe it's been four month of garments already! Awesome. :-)

Beautiful! It looks stunning on you. :-) I love it that you've used a zip from the travelling lace! I'm totally digging the idea of us all using notions from each others stashes in our creations, it makes me smile lots. ;-)

Anything and everything! Images from the past, movies, patterns, colours, nature, sculptures and architecture, fabric, textures, cartoons - everything! I don't know if I have a 'biggest influence' - I think it changes too often, really!

In part of my pig pincushion. It's a deep pincushion though, so I sometimes lose them if I forget to tie on a bit of thread to the top....

I am in love with your dress - it's an utterly gorgeous confection of pretty vintage-ness! :-)

I love the idea of wearing hats, but I'm too chicken to wear them sadly. :-(

I know what you mean about the hat issue - I love the idea of wearing them, but haven't gotten up the courage yet! I figure I should get there soon though - I'm rather used to all the odd looks I get from wearing my brightly-coloured 1950's style dresses most days. Hats do just seem a bit scarier to wear in public though, don't they? Which is such a shame! :-( Maybe we need to start up a 'wear a hat in public day'....

My project that I'm determined to do one day (ideally within the next 6 months - that's the time limit I'm setting myself for it!) isn't actually anything to do with sewing for a change - I want to learn to make basic furniture, and build a bookcase and a couple of sets of drawers myself! (Scary!)

I have a length of gorgeous silk chiffon, with gold metallic thread embroidered in spirals and loops all over it. And another length of silk chiffon, this time with purple, blue, silver and green sequins in a herringbone pattern all over it that look like beautiful fish scales or similar. They're both so lovely, and I'm so scared of accidently ruining them, that I haven't been able to bring myself to cut into them and have been carrying them around for over 8 years so far!

I've never felted my own wool. One day I'd like to try it though.... It just looks so pretty and soft and fluffy and warm! (I think I need more crafting hours in my day first however....!)
