Can you guess? Well, after looking into buying a tailor's ham and seam roll and seeing that either they were completely uninspiring or unfortunately the price of the shipping was prohibitive of the most pretty ones I thought I'd make my own. Initially I had thought sawdust would be hard to find and then the lovely Sarah took pity on my lack of common sense and said 'pet bedding', D'oh! So I will hopefully have a lovely tailor's ham and seam roll to show off sometime soon as need it to press all the princess seams I've been sewing lately...can't show you any of that though, that would be spoiling the surprise!
And because I don't want any of you to think I've been completely unproductive, here's a little something I'm working on:

Speaking of future projects, I treated myself to Colette's Macaron dress pattern in the M is for Make sale the other day and after speaking to Sarah (she's full of good ideas that girl!) I've decided to make it out of cotton velveteen, more precisely, this one and this one which I bought the other day and am waiting for it to arrive! I've never used a Colette pattern before, but boy was I impressed by the packaging! It's so pretty and tactile and it's more like a book, which I really love as there's no folding the pattern instructions this way and that to just get the bit you need to follow. I really want to make this dress as feel it will look awesome on! hehe! I really like The New Vintage Wardrobe's versions here and here. I can't wait to see what mine looks like! It probably won't be for a while though, so don't get your hopes up too much!
And that's it folks! Happy Sewing!
