Description

After finishing my first project I moved straight on to this, my first ever dress!
I’d raided my mums old sewing patterns and found this cute dress/ smock pattern. I finished this surprisingly quickly, just 2 days compared to the months I left the JJ blouse for.

The pattern was easy, the only downsides were: the size- even though it should have fit (thankfully mum was the same size as me) it looked like a sack. I had to take it in about 5" overall on the bodice. I also didn’t need the zip recommended as it’s so big I can pull it on!
Also the collar was quite tricky, but overall I quite like it.

    I love this. It looks so comfy and easy to wear. I’m loving the 70s patterns lately and just finished making a top which I found to big also and had to alter. Great job.

    Well done, the extra fitting was worth it. Love that 70’s vibe! Great colour choice too.
