My first ever adult size dress!!!!

Hey folks,

I made myself a dress! And I'm very excited. Using the fabulous "Miss Marlo Dress" pattern from
Pip Lincolne's book "Sew La Tea Do" I turned this floral vintage sheet from the local Brotherhood of St Lawrence into something wearable! The dress is very very simple, but you have to start somewhere, and I'm happy with the futher step I've taken towards making more clothes for my own wardobe.

I'm thinking of making a few more of these with different fabrics.

What sewing have you been up to recently?

ps- sorry about dodgy photo, but you get the idea!


  1. excellant job, looks lovely! I look forward to making myself some clothes when I dont have a huge bump infront of me!

  2. haha..yes hopefully the awfulness will be over soon..oops, should i say that? was that politically incorrect?!! pregnancy is lovely/horrible all at the same time i think!!! xoxo

  3. Fab dress! Make lots of them, hehe :)

  4. Well done Mez, the dress looks great....nice finding the sheet at the oppy too.
    Always good to start off with an easy project and get it right and build on those skills.

  5. Hey, the photo's not that dodgy! Dress is great. I have made dresses, but years ago, when I had my lovely friend Lorraine to help, inspire and motivate me.Also, Yanny and I didn't do too badly making halternecks before travelling overseas in the late 70s!!!!! But methinks I'll stick with the knitting for now. xo

  6. Hi Mezz,
    Great job on the dress, love the fabric, maybe I too could attempt one of these, haven't sewn a dress as yet!!

  7. hi everybody..thanks for all the love re the dress! hoping to make a few more to take away on our UK holiday!!! woop! mezz x
