Excuse the dodgy photo of me (it was late and I was tired!) but I have made myself a cute and simple little dress! Copying the shape of another dress, and keeping it really, really simple (ie no zips and buttons for me quite yet thanks!) I used an old bed sheet, some bias binding and some op shopped thread!
Here is how I put it together, I am not much of a sewer, so all you dress makers out there, try not to cringe too much about how many corners I cut!!
Chose and old sheet from my stash (went for autumn colours to celebrate the new season!)
cut out the shape of another dress I have
Chose some bright pink thread (picked this up in a bag of craft supplies from the op shop!)
no overlocker, so just zigzagged the exposed edges
started piecing it together
used some pretty bias binding on the arm and neck holes.
I'm a bit happy in my new little dress!!!!
much love, leaves and sunshine
