Piped polka dot posing

I have developed a new sewing obsession – piping!

I wanted to make a classic but stylish skirt and decided piping would help add the “wow” factor along the joins of my V8560. I have made this before using ribbons to cover where the panels join (my birdie skirt)

I have also discovered the best place in my flat for taking photos – the kitchen. With the window open wide I can get lots of natural light, and the (internal) window sill is the perfect height for photos.

My next sewing project is the Lisette Traveller dress, using some super-sweet navy fabric covered in tiny strawberries. I’m going to continue my piping addiction and add some red piping around the collar and sleeves. But before I do any more sewing, it is time to bake!
