I finished the dress from Vogue 8413 & I'm not sure I like it! The drapey fabric isn't drapey enough for the cowl to hang properly, although looking at the pattern envelope it looks the same so maybe it's just me. I have about a metre left & I might try & squeeze a version of Butterick 5567 out of it, if not a simple top will have to suffice. Quite when or where I'll wear the dress I have no idea, I need a function to go to. Wait, Mum's 90th birthday could be the opportunity, I will need a jacket or something to go over it & the same fabric might be a bit too matchy matchy so I'd better get thinking. I have a pink tweedy one in the stash but I think it's the wrong shade, maybe a contrast navy would be good. In which case I'll need to go shopping again!
No photo as yet, need a little time & space to set up the tripod & find a free wall for the background.

Of the career kind. I think. I am now the Domestic Supervisor at our local hospital. A sideways move but necessary in these uncertain times within the NHS. It should keep me employed during the next round of job cuts, most of all I hope it will prove to be a stepping stone to better things. I didn't want to make the move but I'd rather keep myself in employment than face possible redundancy which could have / maybe be an option in the next 12 months.
