Description

I downloaded the Danielle pattern awhile ago and only mustered the courage to try it last week. After some minor adjustments I have a dress that I am satisfied with. I chose material that I wasn’t terribly attached to , only to realize that stripes pose lots of problems. I survived, it’s not so bad, I will wear it, yeah!

      Aww thank you, Its lovely to make something wearable is’nt it. The first dress i made i had a box of safety pins in my bag just in case lol. I felt sure it would fall apart. The more you sew though the more you grow in skill and confidence. I look forward to your next project x

      Thanks, I like the stripes, but they can be a challenge.
