Castletown House Christmas Fair

Castletown House Christmas Fair.
A really great day ,as you can see my stands are low in stock and by the end of day I was all sold out !
By the way this is my friend (with the hat) She helps me out from time to time.
No more craft fairs this year as I have lots of alterations to finish in my workshop.

Lengthen a Dress

Quick and easy way to add length to a dress. As seen in picture 1., sew your strip of lace about one half ins.seam to the hem of the dress
This is what it looks like from the front of dress
Now add some ribbon over the joined seam

This is the ribbon stitched to the seam

All finished and ready to wear,this can be done on most dresses, just remember use a fabric that suits the fabric in your dress!
