My First Dress : I Made…

I have finally finished making my first ever dress!!I brought some different material from Ikea with my birthday money last month with the idea to make 3 fun skirts.

I started making this dress with the intentions of making a maxi skirt.

Being a little worried I would make it to small or to short,

I made it to wide and too long for a skirt!!

Oh well!!

I like it better as a dress!?!

What do you think?

I am loving this pattern on the material.

60’s or 70’s era?

Amazing, how it is only £4.00 a meter.

With the elastic I picked up from Hobbycraft the dress cost me less than £5.00 to make.

Now I need somewhere fun to wear it…

Happy Sunday…

Thanks for stopping by…

Don’t forget to come back later and share what has got you creative this week 🙂

    Great pattern! Very impressed with it. Other people always make thing look so easy, that is until you try to make them yourself. (Or is that just me?)I look forward to seeing what you make next.X x
