This is why not much sewing happened:
Boat trips were more important.
But did made a start tonight on an Oliver and S ice cream dress .
Very annoyed to run out of tissue paper after cutting only the yoke pattern so had to resort to baking paper - let me tell you not ideal as paper but adequate in a sewing emergency.
Then I got side tracked while google searching making of the pattern by hoola hoop tricks ( random I know). Now time is up as I got up really early to squeeze a yoga class into my day , I need some exercise amidst sewing/school holiday action. Now I need to sleep.
