My gorgeous son has just graduated from Northumbria University after completing a PGCE in Primary Education. A Graduation ceremony definitely needs a new dress and so here is The Northumbria.

We took a selfie on the River Tyne!

You will notice I tried a brand new pattern! I fancied a sundress so ordered this pattern– Burda 6918 from the SimplicityNewLook website.

It all sewed up quickly as I did not get time to make the lined bodice! However, it was quite large and I needed to take the side seams in by about two inches each side! The fabric was from my Scarborough haul!

Northumbria University is in Newcastle, which is one of my favourite places. We walked along  the Quayside which has The Baltic and The Sage by it…and even it’s very own beach!

Pattern: Burda 6918

Fabric: 1.5 metres cotton

Wonky Factor: 8/10 it’s still a little big for me on the front but I am glad I tried a new style!!
