A huge thank you to two lovely sisters who call themselves Wipso and Twiglet in blogland who have completely put my sewing output to shame by making 30 dresses between them for the pillowcase dress appeal! Amazing effort. They put out an appeal for fabric on their own lovely blogs and have basically been making dresses ever since! They are not stopping at 30 either and are continuing to make beautiful dresses. You can keep up to date with their progress (which is fast!!) on the their lovely blogs A stitch in time and Twiglet. I seriously need to get off the computer and do more sewing.
They pretty much filled my washing line on their own with their gorgeous dresses. Wipso sent 21 dresses and Twiglet 9 dresses (top right hand side) in all different sizes. Every single dress is individual and beautiful. No mass produced dresses here! I have been so inspired by the little touches that make each dress different.
Details like beautiful pockets
Some are upcycled...this gorgeous dress was once a laundry bag I believe!
handmade bias binding ties with matching pockets
another laundry bag (its hard to believe I know!)
More beautiful detail
More pretty pockets and upcycled pillowcases
I love this fabric. So pretty!
I also love this frill. I am going to try this when I get a minute
Another gorgeous fabric with a pretty co-ordinating pocket
and lots more pretty dresses.....
Thank you both so much. You have put so much time and effort into making dresses. It is very much appreciated. You can see more of their talents at Sisters Crafty Creations
