Tumbling, tumbling, tumbling down...

This was me last night, only more sack of spuds faceplanting than graceful swoon. Plus our stairs are not so grand.
The culprit is this dress:

It was long back then when I made it and it is even longer now, making it a trip hazard. I was wearing suede boots and I think the knit fabric gripped my boot and the combo tripped me up.
I am very sore but very lucky- my left leg and left ribs fared the worst of all of me, but nothing is cracked or broken and I will survive!
My first sewing job when I can sit at the machine again will be lopping four inches off the hem of this dress. It is super duper warm being made of merino sweatshirt fabric so I've been wearing it all the time, pretty much taking it off to wash and dry then putting it on again!

  1. Ouch! Good luck recovering. I took a tumble last week myself.

    The dress is pretty though!

    1. Thank you. I just love it. But it has dropped a lot in the last two years and I've been meaning to give it a trim for ages. Hey ho!

  3. Oh, poor you. I hate to think of people falling over - especially women. Get well soon.

  5. Oh no! I'm nearly a week late responding to this, so I really hope you're feeling better now. And have lopped off the extra length on the dress. <3

    1. Gosh I still haven't fixed it, and to be honest it won't be me fixing it but my sewing lady Kat. NO EXCUSES
