|Proudly wearing my new skirt - the same day I made it!|
On the Sunday we made 'the ultimate shift dress'. This meant darts and a hook and eye fastening at the back. It was my first time making a dress, and my first time making my own covered button for above the hook and eye fastening. I'm so happy and I've already worn it two Friday nights in a row! Apologies in advance for my poor quality images of the dress - I really need to get my camera fixed as the phone photos just aren't cutting it! Also, I need to remember to take more photos when I'm wearing the clothes I've made as this dress looks so much more flattering on than it does in this photo - especially with a lovely gold belt I've got. The mustard/gold fabric is from Ray Stitch - I love this shop, and it's on my walk home from work - bonus! The fabric is a beautiful organic bamboo cotton and it's so soft. They have a great range of colours and it costs £12 a metre. The gorgeous fabric on the sleeves was a present from a friend in Copenhagen. It was a little square of fabric (Japanese?) which must have been intended as a table runner but I'm sure is much happier as the decorative part of my dress!
