Sewing trouble

…and started to cut it out. I started to sew bits together, including sewing darts and it was all going well until….

    yikes, i’ve never braved a zip, that seems way tricky. my circus partner rada, however, is a seamstress so zips r a breeze for her. she’s in the UK at the moment as it happens (have you ever met her? i’ve been friends with her for some time now). i’m sure she’d show you how next time she’s in london
