Currently on my sewing table ...

I've been cutting fabric tonight and I thought I'd share a sneak peek of what I'm currently working on..
Tartan and pleats


I'm hoping to this into a dress in the near future, but we'll see. The pleats might require a bit of tweaking, but I'm pretty pleased with them already. The skirt is cut with a pattern from Burda Easy Fashion magazine (spring/summer 2009). I'm going to use the Peony bodice on it as I'm not too keen on the original bodice and I couldn't get it to sit right when I made a mock-up.   Pleats seem to be my new favourite things so expect to see more of them in the future. So what are your current projects dear readers?
