Added Jun 2, 2007

London, United K...






I created this dress as the perfect Glastonbury outfit – it’s waterproof and it matches my pink wellies!

Much more info at

Material Notes

An IKEA shower curtain, a cotton bedsheet for the linking, and homemade pink piping.

    Love the dress with the wellies. How did the outfit hold up in the mud?

    Love the fabric! And I also love this pattern. I just recently made it myself, out of a cherry print cotton with black piping – it’s my cherry dress! I’ve been thinking of making it again out of something different, and your colour combo is inspiring….giving me ideas….hmmm……

    I love everything about it! Your fabric is perfect for the dress and you matched the colors wonderful! Pretty coordinated snickers too!

    The pattern is tempting me also, I have the mag!

    I absolutely love it! It’s on my “To sew” list too…but I don’t think I could make it as nicely as yours…

    Sue, if you hurry you should still be able to get this issue at bookstores. I know Borders in the UK and the US usually stock it. :)

    And thanks, nora! This will be my sixth Glastonbury, but only my second where I’m not working (we used to do the webcasting)!

    The dress looks very nice, especially those pink stitches. I think i should sew it also.

    This is gorgeous! And I love that you used a shower curtain – very creative. Your piping is also beautifully done (thanks for linking it to Nayantara’s How To!).

    Have a great time at Glastonbury!
