My first dress…

My attempt at making my first ever dress – a few mishaps here or there, but in general it came out all right in the end!

Fabric from Iraq, new sewing machine from John Lewis, pattern from New Look!


Making the skirt bit


My shiny new sewing machine


Trying on the top half


Piecing the top and bottom halves together


And voila! Finished product!


Here I am wearing it to a friend’s wedding! Bit chuffed with it in the end!
