I've been lurking on and off for the past few years on Craftster and found it an endless source of help and inspiration! So when I made a tutorial for beginners on making a summer dress for my blog, I thought I should give something back. As you will see, I am still a complete novice at crafting, but I just enjoy it so much and websites like this have shown me that anyone can do it. So, if it will help anyone when it comes to making their first dress or whatever, then I'll be pleased. So here it is.

(By the way, I'm not entirely sure what you would call this type of dress - a sundress? skater dress? I dunno. What do you think? I just made it up as I went along haha)

Any comments/criticism welcome! Thanks!

This is beautiful!  I love how the waistband pulls everything in - very figure flattering!  I so admire you for making your own pattern as you go, that takes some real talent!  Good job.

Very pretty sundress!  It really suits you.

I love the pic on your blog with the dogs nose!  Also looking at your blog made me smile - I used to live in Brum & it made me have a little reminisce! Smiley


I have lots of train tickets (I get the train most days), if anyone wants some for papercrafting just send me a PM Smiley

I'd say sundress, and a really cute one! Smiley I just adore the fabric.

Also, as a complete aside, you have incredibly beautiful skin!

In the end, only kindness matters.

Aw thanks! Too nice lol   Embarrassed

I think it could still do with a last bit of tailoring to iron out those wrinkles here and there. But I was feeling lazy after all that  Tongue

The fabric is awesome and adds the vintage style to this dress ; ) I don't know how to name it also, but for sure, it's a cute dress!

It's a fine line between 'hobby' & 'mental illness

I loooooovveee the dress!  And the tutorial looks great - good photos and good explanation, and fun to read!  I laughed at the part about using darts to fit around one's "peaks and troughs".  Thanks so much for writing it!

A-ok with personal swaps.
