Up-close of the strap:

Home-made bias-binding too.  What you can't see is the velcro closures on the flap.

Based on this tutorial:

Take one idea, cut out fabric, sew, decide its not how you wanted, unpick, cut, sew some more, zipper, cue the needle falling out of the machine, do the dishes, do the zipper again, sew, overlock, try on, sit down and watch hubby and step-daughter crash their racing cars on xbox:

Thanks for looking Smiley

Hi, I'm in NZ and been sewing for a few years Smiley

I can never find a dress to suit or fit so I thought why not just make one (I usually make bags or skirts for my daughter). So inspired by this tute: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=77268.0

This is what I ended up with (please excuse the bad pic quality, my son and hubby stole the batteries out of my camera for the xbox controllers):


Close up of the print:

It needs a belt so I just used a velvet ribbon and tied it round my waist.

Thanks for looking Smiley
