hi! I have been lurking for a while on the sewing bords because I am trying to teach myself to sew. I realize that this pattern might be a walk in the park for all of you talented people but, I am completely left in the dark. If anyone has a clear and understandable set of directions please let me know. I will be forever greatfull.

I made a tutorial awhile ago

I just noticed I said to cut off the white part, and that I have white parts in the centre of the dress, don't cut those off, just the white parts that represent the arm holes.

I'm in the middle of making a summer dress out of a pillowcase for myself (I'm a UK size 6...tiny!) and it has no clasps or zips, I just have to wriggle about to get in it (that's the problem of a dressmaker's dummy; they can't wriggle!) I'll post up a tut on the recon. forum and will PM you the link when I'm done. I've basically pinned it to my dressmaker's dummy, roughly cut the excess off and sewn it up, then taken it on more when it was modelled on me, then added ruffles and altered the neckline. I have to line it still because it's really thin, but yeah I'll let you know when it's done!
