These are pretty much the first clothes I've ever made, not counting pyjamas and trackies, and I think they turned out pretty well. I really love the cherry fabric, so much that I bought another two metres of the stuff.

This dress looks a bit wonky, but I think it's just the way I'm standing. It looks better when I'm wearing a decent bra too.



I love, love, love this skirt. I'm going to make another one out of some other cherry fabric I've got. (For some reason I'm obsessed with cherries.)

I love cherries too!  Cheesy Your dress and skirt are great! Any chance of a close-up, I can't really see the details!

Thanks, amaZing! By the way, what's your opinion of the tucked-in singlet with the skirt ? I hate tucked-in tops, but I have to admit it looks much better with the skirt that way. Am I committing a fashion faux pas in that photo ? I so have no idea about this stuff Smiley

The tucked in singlet looks great with that skirt...I don't think it is a fashion faux pas as I know tucked in tops are in fashion with high waisted skirts (although this is not high waisted, it's kinda the same rule!).

I love the dress.  Was it made from a commercial pattern and, if so, which one?  I think I may be a similar size and shape as you and the dress is so flattering on you that I'd love to make one for myself.

Thanks for the advice on the tucked-in top thing, Aaurora. Eventually I'll learn all this fashion stuff, right ? Smiley

J4Joolz, the dress is made from New Look 6459. I made View A.

I'm so excited about all these positive comments! I really wasn't sure if my stuff was any good, so this has been awesome. Thanks, people Smiley

Both were pretty simple patterns. I'd never done zippers before, so I had to get my mum to help with that part of it, but other than that they were pretty easy. The only real problem I had was that somehow the skirt turned out way too small, so I had to add a panel at the back, but even that turned out ok in the end.

I decided to make a halter dress out of the rest of the cherry material, which is definitely going to be a learning experience. There are so many pieces! Eeek! Smiley
