Getting Better


Here it is, I'm so proud of this dress even if there are bits that haven't gone quite right but now I know what and where I can correct it next time.

 I bought this fabric from an ebay seller in the US as you just cannot get decent, cheap fabric for love nor money in the UK, God I hate living in England sometimes :(

I put bias binding around the neck and armholes for decoration rather than on the inside as the pattern suggested and after some trials and errors with the 'button loop' I finally decided to use some very thin ribbon and it works perfectly.





  1. How cute is Poppy? Too, too cute. And you've done a fabulous job with the dress (and the practice version). Keep up the good stitching.

  2. Thank you :)

  3. I love these A-Line dresses you are making! they look terrific! Are you using a pattern, or did you just make them up? I would love to start sewing these for my daughter. :)
