(Lack of) progress on the mini wardrobe

Regarding the mini wardrobe, so far I have partly constructed the 'key' piece which is a knit dress.
Since this can be pre-made I'm already a bit behind.

I'm away this weekend, and also away for a whole week at the end of September, the rest of the time I seem to be working, asleep or reading people's blogs who ARE actually sewing.

Anyway.... I guess I wanted to set your expectations nice and low, because on my current estimates I'll manage the dress, camisole and leggings and nothing else during September and therefore won't have actaully achieved the requirements of the contest. Ah well.

I've been very blessed by other sewists sending me sewing related gifts, and I will both share some of these with you, plus try and 'pay it forward' a little by offering some small giveaways here on the blog.

Due to international postage being a bit painful these will be small and light things folks - lace/elastic, buttons, the odd pattern etc, as sending anyone fabric is just not feasible due to the weight, which will be open to blog followers who comment on the relevant posts.

That's all for now.

Please do not be upset about not being in time with others. The main idea (I think so) - is TO GET YOUR MINIWARDROBE - and you'll make it - may be not in September , but in October for sure!
Secondly - for example you have inspired me for creation my own fall miniwardrobe - and it means much for me and the whole merit is yours! So you have already done a lot!

Thanks for the encouragement!

I am sure you will get your wardrobe done, maybe not in the timescale, but if you get a lovely new wardrobe out of it, you will have won regardless of whether you meet your timescale or not.
