Remember this dress...
This is such a great pattern New Look 6154. It can be made in an hour and because it has a centre back seam; is easy to make a sway back adjustment (which I need but did not make. The black dress was $3 per metre and I just wanted to test it so didn't bother. The one below - just too lazy for a throw on dress. This one feels "work" to me and I can wear it with a cardi and have a business coffee with my mentor from uni.
|Hee hee - just noticed I'm reading a Spotlight brochure!!!|
Speaking of uni... I finished lectures on Thursday and now I have a relaxing (wet) weekend with my son before swat (what does that mean?) week and then 3 exams in three days after a long weekend. My son will be at his Dad's on the long weekend and I got all excited as I thought I could go away to Melbourne with a friend for some shopping, eating and just plain fun but then I realised I would be having my exams.. damn! Next year I'll be finished so that would work out nicely anyway.
My son turned 8 recently and he had a Laserforce party - where his little friends and Dad suited up and lasered each other for a couple of hours. The boys (big and small) really loved it and I made some sushi for snacks and this Darth Vader cake. It's not great but I was under pressure with assignments etc but lets face it - 8 year old boys who are Star Wars MAD did not see a lopsided not quite black out of proportion cake but DARTH VADER! The oohs and aahs were worth it. My sister suggested I should have painted some of the food colouring around the edges to make it stand out - great idea I'll use next time (where was she at 11pm???)
