I made a dress!

Yes I made a dress!
I don't know about you but I get really jealous of all these people that make these fantastic clothes. 

Me, I struggle to put a zip in a pouch! 
However one day last week I sat with the computer and researched dress patterns. I looked around back and forth on the internet until I finally settled on this pattern.
The Bianca Dress by Rae of the Washi Dress fame. 

I have even worn it out of the house on more than one occasion! (How brave am I!)

The pattern was really easy to print out and put together and incredibly easy to follow. I managed to cut out and make the whole dress (except heming) while watching back to back World cup Matches. 
(I would have been quicker if I hadn't been watching the football)! 

I plan to make at least one more as I have some fabric stashed away which I bought to make a skirt with over a year ago. I'm going to scratch the skirt idea and make a dress instead. But the speed at which you can make this dress means that there may be several more made over the summer. 

P.S. Sorry about the headless photos but I really hate having my photograph taken and instructed the photographer (number 2 son) to chop my head off in all the pictures. He obliged willingly!

Have a good weekend everyone!

Loving the dress. I sooo agree with you about having photos taken. I recently thought if I went missing my family wouldn't be able to give the police a photo!!!! Better not get lost. Looking forward to seeing your next dress. Sarah
