My very first item of clothing! I have only been sewing for a couple of months and loved making this dress. I finished it sunday afternoon ready for a party that night. The instructions on you tube were great and really helpfull. I found the bias binding a little tricky and had to put in two extra darts in the back due to a small back. I shall definatly be making another one perhaps in denim next time for the autumn.

Material Notes

white Linen suiting
Linen bias binding

    So cute :-) Such a sense of accomplishment to finish something for the first time! I’m just finishing up my first dress. (I’v sewn for years, but never for myself and always costumes and home decor stuff.) I’m looking forward to posting soon. I love your shoes … Did you have them in mind when you were picking out your fabrics?

      Thank you for your comments. The shoes came from next and they just happened to be a perfect match. That never normally happens! Hope your dress goes well. 
