I love the colours on the first dress with its co-ordinating binding, ties and band at the bottom. So pretty.
Dress two is just as lovely with its vibrant summer colours
The flowers are so pretty and the dress is finished off with a cute little heart button. Thanks Jo!
Izzy has been nagging me to make her a pillowcase dress for ages now so inspired by the dresses that keep arriving I had another go.
I'm really pleased with this one. The fabric was only £3.50 a metre from Fabricland but it looks much more expensive I think.
I have discovered that sewing dresses is actually quite addictive so I had to have a go at the other method in the tutorial I linked to. This time with more expensive fabric which made sewing it much more scary! I had a go at making bias binding for the first time too (time consuming but worth it is my verdict)
I love the fabric on this dress but the fit isn't quite as good on Izzy and the straps are maybe a bit too wide. I'm quite pleased at my first attempt of this version though.
I then felt guilty that these dresses were for me and made another one for the charity! The blue version of the pink Fabricland fabric. I am so going back to buy more of this fabric.
I also wanted to share a great new online E Magaine about contemporary craft I've come across called The Craft Tonic. Its well worth a look and has lots of really interesting features in it. I ended up spending ages looking through it.
They also have a lovely blog here. Its well worth a look!
