So i made a dress!
I went on 'freecycle' and asked for some sewing stuff, and in return a nice lady gave me lots of patterns and this fabric.
I made it for a ball i was organising (my sister took the photos)
(i don't know why this one is brown...)
it had a bodice and everything!!
the skirt was gatherred, and so were the straps - a little.
I appologise for my piggy-tales and my face
The pattern told me to use interfacing, so i did, but it was 'medium' and made it go all stiff, and i tried to cut it out but i couldn't really - i was too scared. So at the top, under the armpits, it kind of sticks out rather like a tulip would. I tried to get a photo, but it didn't work:
Apart form that it came out suprisingly well.
Apart from i kind of 'missed' when i was cutting the hem and snipped a big triangle in my fabric, but i ziq-zagged it with some red thread and it was fine - you can't see it.
I hope you like it! I'm really proud!
If you don't, or you have ANY suggestions etc PLEASE tell me i really won't get sad or anything.
i'm thinking maybe a sash, or ribbon for the waistline???
thanks for looking!
p.s.my mum helped lots with the gathering.
