"We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We are born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us, it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

Spotty jersey dress

My blogging has finally slowed down as it was back to my 'real job' last week. I thought I'd try to make a few dresses that I could wear to work. Here is one I made on a rainy old afternoon-

(My son took these photos and I am holding that yellow belt in place as it is too big- Not the best, I know!)

I added wider straps to this one- more 'teacher suitable' I think!  This little number looks pretty with red, yellow and turquoise accessories (not all at once!) so I think it will be quite versatile. The fabric was from this cool ebay shop in the UK. I thought the postage was reasonable and it arrived really quickly.

My next challenge will be to make a dress with cap sleeves. I don't know how to do sleeves and the pattern I have has really limited instructions so I'll see how I go. If anyone knows of a good tutorial for adding sleeves I'd love to take a peek!

It's another rainy day today. Let's see what fun the kids and I can get up to before they are back to school in Monday.

Thanks for reading!
