I'm so happy with how this turned out and once again would highly recommend Jane's tutorial for any beginner's like myself, or indeed for anyone in need of a quick, satisfying sewing fix!
Continuing on with this productivity I surprised myself last night by getting on with a turquoise dress, another McCalls 2401, which I've had cut out for ages. Hopefully I'll get it finished by the end of the week! I did make a second McCalls 2401, after the initial toile, in a lovely fabric I got from Walthamstow market. I made it for a wedding but forgot to get any photos, then I wore it again for my birthday on Saturday and once again forgot to take any photos. I'll just have to wear it again this weekend and get a photo this time!
