stop the bus

I went on quite a journey with my latest make for Minerva. For the warts and all lowdown on my attempt at Lynn Mizono Vogue 1312, head over to my post up on the Minerva Crafts Blogger Network.

    1. Thank you very much for the kind words and yes it is the one Elaine has made. I know this as I trawled the Internet looking for tips from anyone who had made it!The necklace was made by someone called Belles Bejewelled and it’s a corker isn’t it 🙂 X


    1. Thank you Eimear. It really did feel like salvaging something from a wreckage! I told myself it would do for work and that’s where it’s getting most use. A great learning experiences now it’s over!


  1. What can I say?! I needed time to recover after just reading your post on this dress. You tenacity is so impressive. I don’t like to abandon a project but I honestly don’t think I could have persevered like you did. It really was worth it though, you look absolutely stunning in that dress and it is the perfect backdrop for your amazing neckpiece. Well done! xx

    1. HA! I can imagine you were exhausted after reading it – I was exhausted after writing it and every stage up to that point. It was an epic make that I’m so glad to see the back of! Thank you for your encouragement and for taking the time to read my words – it means a lot. I’m happy to say progress on my current Wendy Ward project is much more plain sailing 🙂 X


  2. I like the drape at the back but then if it’s not your vision I can imagine your tenacity in wanting to rectify it. You are a surgeon when it comes to cloth. I’m a great believer in the unpicker, and wonder what we did before it’s invention. Such a beautiful drape and the necklace takes it into another dimension. A delight to look at! X

    1. I’m glad you like it – it was an epic journey for sure! It’s not that the drape wasn’t my vision – it’s just not what the pattern designer intended and I want to hone my skills and then deviate consciously and not due to a lack of skill. I swore I’d never touch knits again after this debacle and then a week later I was back on the proverbial horse. The necklace is fab isn’t it! I don’t have much occasion to wear it but I like having it in case that occasion does arise 🙂 xx
