Hey! Feels good to be back and to see the blog the way I want it to be! But honestly though, being naturally spontaneous, I just might do one or two tweaks subsequently - Lord help!
Now for previous readers of TSN, you would definitely notice the change in theme, colour,media buttons....I felt it was much needed because for one I wanted an all white background ( although retained the predominant pink colour which you now see all round the blog's pages).....all in all, I hope you like the new look!
Now on to the business of the day. quite honestly, I had to draft the intended post I was to upload and send this out because its been pending for too long and in my bid to becoming a more serious blogger lol!, I that it wise to send in the finished Sika sew along dress before doing my new posts.
In case you wondering why I didn't share the rest of the process, 'participants' on the blog weren't being very encouraging, abandoning me! so I had to go it in my own :-(
Anyways, hope it would be better next time and meanwhile the sew along on Nairaland.com is picking up so well, would share photos with you soon.
So here's my version of the Sika Scope Wrap Dress- I wanted a full skirt but with minimal gathers, so I added tulle to the underskirt. Hope you like!

<a href="http://www.bloglovin.com/blog/3966618/?claim=ddrssqrumpy">Follow my blog with Bloglovin</a>Hello you!hope you doing great? So I just wanted to put it out there that this blog's undergoing some much needed change so please please bear with me on my absence and lack of updates and of course things would be a bit shaky for awhile, but we would be thankful for the change in the end! Bless you! And keep visiting!
Ps. The finished sew- along dress would be posted soon as the blog 'stabilises' this is because, participants were/are still more willing (if I may use that word) on the Nairaland sew along thread I opened when the Sika sew along took off. Feel free to check it out!

Hi everyone! Hope you had a great time at church? :-) now I'm uploading the underlining posts rather simultaneously i.e underlining for both the skirt and the bodice< so watch, make and reach out if you've got any questions.

Following the princess seam tutorial as seen here, cut out yours according to your body measurements.
Monday, 20 May 2013
After I got the first couple of mails regarding princess seams, I decided to post a tutorial here. But then again, I got yet another request from a dear reader on the same, and so I thought to make a 'clearer princess seam post'
The labels 'A', 'E' and 'B' stand for the Apex(nipple or highest point of the bust), Empire (that area under the bust, normally measured from the top of the shoulder to the underbust i.e. where your bra rests), and Bodice (your belly button, normally measured from your shoulder to belly button)
The determined width would read as technical if I explain it, so I would just advice that you add about 12'' to half your bust line measurement and if you are making a dress, add to your hip measurement. If you are bigger however, feel free to add incremental inches so you don't make errors and waste your fabric.
Fold your fabric in two: measurements used here - bust(34), bodice(17 x 26), empire(27)
