This is the first time I've made a dress and used a pattern. thank god it was really easy Cheesy


I used Butterick pattern B4790
I made the skirt part half circle instead of full circle since I didnt want it to be too wooshy .
The front wraps right around and buttons at the back then the back wraps around and buttons at the front.


here's the dress (no I'm not on a hill my mum was just trying to be artistic  Roll Eyes )


here's the side veiw


close up of the heart buttons  Smiley



I made a practice one out of a bedsheet first then tryed to dye it black but it didnt work so I gave it to my boyfriend to play with.
I think he likes it  Cheesy

for mine I'm going to make a red flower pin or something to make it a bit more exciting i think.

If I get a chance I might make one to list on my etsy shop  but i think I'll practice again first though, but i just want to make like 10  there so fun  Grin

it was really really easy when i first got the pattern i was scared to even open it lol but it was simple pimple Cheesy I'll give a little step by step to show what you do

1. pin all the pattern parts and cut them out
2. pin an stitch the darts front and back
3. sew the skirt to back piece
4. sew shoulders together
5. hem front pannel then the skirt  
5. pin and sew the binding round neck and sides
6. sew on buttons and snaps

it's quick to make too the only bit that takes any time is pinning the hem on the skirt Smiley

Ooh! that's nice, I bought this pattern the other day and I can't wait to try it. I was planning on making the skirt less-full too. I love the red and black.  What kind of material is it?

Man got to tell himself he understands.

Gorgeous! I so want this pattern!

Because I'm lazy and don't like to hem, I would have added the red to the bottom of the skirt.

You are a very good sewer, I envy you. Grr.

It looks great and I love the black and redness!
Where abouts did you get the pattern from, that website? I can't find it for the UK anywhere online Sad
