well, its been a while since i've entertained my creative side but i finally sat down and made a dress this week so i could wear it to a picnic night out with the girls. I have had some polka dot fabric residing under the guest room bed since i bought it from global fabrics a while ago. It was time to make something of it.
I used a combination of patterns ive made over time and threw them together with a bow around the neck. The dots on the fabric run from big to small along the grainline so I decided to cut the bow from the 'big dot' end to contrast with the smaller dots at the top of my dress.

A wee while ago i was asked to make a dress for my sister for her awards night. In preparation for this i decided to make myself a version of the dress when i was in the drafting stage for the pattern. I also made myself a little lace vest/top which i find is really good for adding a bit extra to some of my plain t-shirt dresses. Heres the end result.
