Megan Dress and a cross dog!

I made the Megan Dress from the Love At First Stich book with some cheap tartan. I decided to use this instead of making a muslin and I've actually ended up with a wearable dress! I really love the shape and fit of this dress and plan to make at least two more - one using the Spring Hares fabric and possibly one in linen, although I'm slightly concerned that a linen version would end up with a saggy bottom after a day of wearing and sitting!

When I put in the invisible zip in the fish skirt I used a regular zipper foot and the result is ok but not completely invisible, so for this dress I invested all of £5 in an invisible zipper foot and I think it makes a big difference. The next challenge for me is clearly in the art of pattern matching!

I also, finally, finished my pink (oh so very pink!) lace and kidsilk haze scarf. I don't think it looks that great on me so I put in on Mabel instead - as you can see from her expression she is not impressed! Maybe pink isn't her colour either!
