You can find all the details on her blog post here. Will you be joining us? I believe that if you're not local to Melbourne you can join in by sending her a pic of yourself in your high-tea finest and join in in spirit.
I'm hoping to make a pretty dress for the occasion, and am even hoping that this event will give me the push to finally have the guts to sew up the blue roses liberty that my Gran gave me. The plan is to make something that I can also wear to a wedding I'll be going to later in the year.
I was thinking something with a fitted bodice and a full skirt, but there's so many decisions to make! I think I've settled on a bodice a bit like the one below, with a wide scooped neck and extended shoulder seams to make little cap sleeves. However, I don't know which kind of skirt I want; gathered, pleated, gored, circle? So many options!
Are you going to come to the Sewcie Tea? (If you are, remember to RSVP to Mel)
What kind of dress would you make with the blue roses liberty?
PS: And for Melbourne locals, remember the fabric shopping trip Kat is planning for the 9th of Feb? No? All the details can be found here. That should also be a fun day!
