This is a summer dress I made. Now all we need is some hot weather this year so I can wear it!



This was my first concealed zip, and I'm really pleased with it. It was much easier that I thought it would be, and looks really neat.

I love how neat and crisp your work looks!  The colours are perfect.  Is the dress lined and what kind of fabric did you use on it?  Concealed zippers make all the difference in the world to a finished product...you did a most excellent job on this!

I made a skirt yesterday and it was my first ever attempt fitting a zip, it went smoothly but it's not hidden, I mean its not overly obvious (once my internet stops being an ass I'll make a post and put up pictures) but its still there, how do you do a concealed zip? Is there some trick that I don't know about?

Demi_Kitten: You need a special kind of zip to make it concealed, but I find them easier to insert than normal zips now! I did buy a special foot, but I couldn't work out how to use it so I just used my normal zipper foot.

I followed a tutorial I found on the internet

Midnight Sun: This dress isn't lined - it's just got a facing at the top round the neck and arm edges. The fabric is a batik dyed cotton I got from John Lewis ages ago.

I made this dress from the same pattern, which is lined.

It's a pattern I got years ago - I think it was from a magazine. I've long since lost the original pattern, but luckily this size still fits me!
