This is the first dress I have made, I love it!

Material Notes

I bought some cotton from a dusty shop that looks like it hasn’t re-stocked since the 1950’s… $2 per metre, bargain!

Living in such a quiet country has it’s benefits!

    Hey I have been on her site and I can’t seem to download the pattern in a way that let’s me actually read what she has written on it! If you have the pattern saved somewhere could you please send it to me? I really, really, really want to make this dress for this coming weekend!!

      I just looked at your pink skirt with the bow, was the pattern on the internet?
