My new birthday dress

i saw this fabric in the fabric store and decided to get some to make up a dress for my ebay store and as a bit of a prototype. However it just looked so pretty when I made it I was kind of sad that i hadn’t made it in my size!

I went straight back to the fabric store when I could to buy some more of this fabric for a dress for me! I had it stashed for a few months until last weekend when I decided that i was going to finally make the dress up in time for my birthday last tuesday,

i’m pleased with how it came out – though lets not talk about the invisible zip – apparantly you shouldn’t rish these things! i still love the fabric. I’ll still be wearing this dress in the dreary winter with a cardigan perhaps!

This is kwik sew 3521 by the way!

Material Notes

100% cotton, cream poly cotton lining, invisible zip.

      Thanks, I know – isn’t it! It didn’t look all that impressive on the roll!
