Your dress is FANTASTIC! It's for sure the prettiest piece of clothing made out of ties I've ever seen!

Thanks Cheesy

Thats so cute!!  I tried something similar once with a vase but it shattered when i tried to drill through it.

I used drill bits that are made for porcelain, ceramics, glass etc. Diamond drill bits? You sort of polish the porcelain away. I did it in the kitchen sink to have water handy and to avoid the dust from spreading too far...

Thanks Cheesy

Gingham is great Wink

Sweetestpea: I have to agree with Cheyenneswthrt07, the bodice is the only thing that takes some time. As long as you don't have to do any major alterations, you should be able to make a dress in an evening or two, maybe? I find that copying the pattern and cutting out the pieces is the most time consuming part. Hope you decide to give the pattern a chance, good luck!

Drilled a hole in the bottom of  a small tea cup. Just enough to fit a bulb through it to go into the socket.

Cute, no?


With light on:


Took me forever to make the hole, but I probably didn't have the best equipment. If anyone reading this knows a good way to make holes in porcelain, please let me know. It would be awesome to simply cut the hole out in a perfect circle, one could cut out pieces of the decoration and use for jewelry or buttons?

I've wanted to sew my own clothes for years and years, and slowly but surely my skills are improving. I've tried a few patterns for summer dresses, but this has to be the best ever.



Although the strap thingies in the pattern look great, I found it way easier to just have a halterneck tie-thing on the dress, less fitting to do, and it makes the dress more summery...


I made an underskirt/lining on the skirt-part of the dress. The fabric was cheap synthetic stuff, but turns out to be great when it's hot, and it doesn't get wrinkles.

The pattern I used: McCall's 4444.

I've made one in dark blue fabric w/ small flowers as well, and have one more in the making, trying to change the straps to go over the shoulders and cover a regular bra strap, but it's hard to do right for some reason. The type of fabric and coulour/patterns make the dresses look different, so I don't have to feel tooo stupid wearing the same dress all the time Tongue
