Description

This is a great pattern, its two pieces and a bit of binding. I made three for my holiday and i made slight differences to them. Two have leather collars and one has the same fabric as the dress. I do love my binder maker. These are so comfortable and cute i think x

      I really just have to add the scarf and lining to it. I’m not sure about the back panal being white? I might change it to pink and use the white for the scarf instead of navy? I’ll photo the origonal colourway in case i change it x

    Real holiday mood and fun! And the dresses are the best choice for such an atmosphere:-) I like the fabrics you used: they made the style, didn’t need complex patterns and create cheerful spirit that reflects your character!

    Welcome home Mary. Looks like you had a lovely holiday with perfect weather and you were certainly wearing the perfect dresses to enjoy it all. This is a great pattern and suits you so well. When you say you love your binder, is that a binder for your overlocker or your sewing machine?? I am thinking of buying a cover stitch machine and you can buy a binder to go with that to sew on stretch bindings, so I would be grateful for any tips on what to buy.

      Thanks schnui, its just a binder maker i got, it’s fab. I only have vintage sewing machines, i have about 8 of them. They sew through everything and are such a pleasure to use. My dream is to own an industrial one one day x
