Hi, I'm in NZ and been sewing for a few years Smiley

I can never find a dress to suit or fit so I thought why not just make one (I usually make bags or skirts for my daughter). So inspired by this tute: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=77268.0

This is what I ended up with (please excuse the bad pic quality, my son and hubby stole the batteries out of my camera for the xbox controllers):

Dress:


Close up of the print:


It needs a belt so I just used a velvet ribbon and tied it round my waist.

Thanks for looking Smiley

It fits beautifully and looks very tailored close up. The velvet ribbon is just the thing for it too.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.
