painter sheet? Yes, the op shop (in Cheltenham) downgraded this white material to be used I assume to cover furniture and floors when decorating. Such a waste I thought, that leaf print is far too good for decorating purposes surely? Sold for $1 *cheer*
This is the first time I've ever seen a pattern out of its packet. At first I found the whole thing a little bit overwhelming, and quick frankly, a pain in the arse because it is huge and the paper is so incredibly flimsy. The only floor space big enough to organise my pattern - out on the deck - is not great when the wind blows.
But wait, look, I did it!
I decided not to go with the asymmetrical design, because, aside from the fact I did not have a constrasting fabric, I didn't really like the diagonal line anyway.
I wear my tunic painter sheet dress with a thrifted scarf, and Ann Taylor Loft thrifted heels. It turned out good. There are no fussy zips or buttons.
A quote from my Mum in relation to my sewing pursuits: "I never thought I'd see the day.."
