Sewing------finally!


I grabbed these two dresses from Big W yesterday to get some ideas to make a dress for Ellyse.

I used the lower half of the first dress and the upper part of the second dress to create the third dress!

My Aunty gave me the fabric on Sunday, she has had it for years. The dress worked out really well, have a little bit of fine tuning to do but it looks cute on Ellyse. I will get a photo after her bath.

I was happy with this attempt of drafting my own pattern! Much better than last time.

Here is Ellyse in the dress. I meant to mention that it has pintucks and a ruffle, you can't really see that detail.

Andrea, the dress is great. And looks so cute on Ellyse. I can't want until Amelia is wanting and can wear more dresses (I might rethink what I just said when she is running around - LOL)

Well done Andrea! I admire that you can just draft a pattern yourself. I haven't tried doing that yet, just modified commercial patterns so far. Ellyse looks really great in it too.
