I finished this dress after the much needed cool change came through Sunday last week, but I haven't got around to blogging about it until now. No excuse really, I just haven't got around to taking the pictures. Anyway, thank goodness for the cool change as it meant I could finally get back to sewing. The heat was making me stir crazy. I think it had something to do with leaving the curtains closed during the day, shutting myself off from the world and only peering out of the windows once the sun went down at night. On the odd occasions that I left the house over the weekend, the place was a ghost town – it was as if I stepped into a zombie apocalypse and I was going to have to slay a pack of zombies as I entered the supermarket. People walked with their heads drooped and grunted nonsense. Anyway, I have sidetracked. As I was saying, I am glad that the cool change finally hit as I really needed to finish my Guerilla Gardening Sigma dress.

I’m happy with the finished product. The actual construction went smoothly (except for a moment of dumbness when I attached the zipper on backwards – I’m still trying to work out how exactly that happened!). All in all, I am happy with the result and think it will definitely be a work staple through summer. Now for the actual intended final run: although I have had a change of heart with the fabric and will sew the next in a liberty print.
