Charley's 2nd entry.

Who it is for - my daughter
What is it - this is my second Thelma boiler suit made from lightweight denim.
Any problems - none, I remembered the button placket without much difficulty, and the button fly worked well too.
This garment does take time to make, and cutting out and marking is an important part for me (being a newbie). I did enjoy the process, despite all the buttons and button holes.

Daughter chose fabric and is happy with how it looks.

Lorraine’s first entry

First tutu in well over a year.
Made for son in law’s niece. A last minute make started beginning of April and collected for an online competition last weekend.
Bodice is silk dupion using a new (to me) pattern from Suzanne Deickman and tutu is two colours of Italian net mixed to obtain the right colour. The trim was cut from some embroidered lace fabric I got a few years ago from China.
I’m always really insecure about my makes and get hot and sweaty with nerves when they come to collect.
Ellie was a very happy young lady.
