First sewing lesson!

Today I gave my first sewing lesson (sewer expert now). I showed my housemate Albane how to turn her dress into a tunic.


Unfortunately, I forgot to take a "before" picture, but here you can admire the end result. Not bad for someone who's never used a sewing machine before!


And the details...


As you can see, it was a gorgeous day in Hull today. We've been really spoiled in terms of weather these days, especially when I know there is still snow in Toronto. It makes me appreciate it all the more. :-)

Last Monday I went to Leeds for an academic event. What is the first thing I did there? You guessed it: check out the fabric shops. To my great chagrin, the stores were closed in the early morning and late afternoon, but they looked so promising that I shall go back to Leeds this Friday to cheer up my poor fabric-deprived self. (By the way, I never realised that Leeds was the second biggest city in the UK. It's huge.) I'll let you know how the fabric shopping goes! (Can't wait!!)
