My dining table is always in use.
Not for dining though. It is usually covered in folded clean washing or yarn.
But it was cleared recently for visitors so I took the opportunity to turn it into the sewing table. Out came the sewing machine as I thought I'd finally revamp this dress that I got from mum on my last visit up north.
But then someone piped up and said I promised her a dress.....
So out came a vintage pillow case, elastic and ribbon.
Of course I had to put a crochet flower on it too.
The base flower pattern came from here. And then I kind of just winged it with the other two. Both are very similar - just slight variations.

And so my dress was destined for another day....
