Most of what I sew at the moment is to save some money. My daughter has outgrown lots of dresses, but i can cut them off and make a skirt for my youngest daughter for example. With 5 kids I just can't afford to keep buying new clothes!
I am getting married in a few months, and have bought 4 plain dresses for my girls to wear as flower girl dresses. They are plain white. I am wanting to sew a tulle layer into the bottom of the dresses, in the wedding colours, to add a bit of colour to them.
How much do i need to order (ie how much gather), do i do more then one layer? What works nicely?
I have some old PJs, that I love the material of, and want to recycle. What could I make out of them? It is top and bottom, and long flannel ones. Having a total mind blank of anything I could do with them! I'd love to make knickers out of them, cos the material is cute, but as it's not stretch I don't think I can?
