So, the good news is I managed 5 items instead of 4, more than my target (which is just as well as Week 3 has been a bit 'iffy'!)
And what had I learnt at this point? ... I stick to patterns I feel comfortable with. I haven't worn any repeat items at this point but Sorbettos are really well represented and I definitely got my money's worth out of my 60s dress pattern. I'm starting to see how I need to change and get brave to move my sewing forward.
I'll be back with Week 3 - frankly there are only so many awkward photos of myself I can look at in one hit - not a natural model!
