It was her dance school presentation night on Saturday so I made her an outfit!  The fabric was 99p in a charity shop and I drafted the pattern myself.  I found some matching ribbon and trimmed an old T shirt.

The turquoise socks were her addition to the outfit!

good score on the fabric!  Looks great... drafted own pattern?  Right on  Smiley

How was the satin to sew with?  More difficult than regular cotton fabrics?

At the same time I got 2 metres of grey denim, plus a whole sari - for 99p each!

The pattern was just a bit of maths really, - waist measurement divided in 6 then add some seam allowance!

The satin was no harder to work with than cotton actually, which surprised me.

Thanks almond!

And I could totally use some grey denim right now actually  Cheesy  Finding great fabrics in the charity shop is somehow much more satisfying than just buying from fabric store. At least for me  Smiley
