Sewing Project #13

Yay to my third dress! I think this one is my favorite though there were many problems with it. This is my second dress with sleeves and I added a collar, which was very problematic. I used this tutorial to draft it but the shoulder area was awkward and it actually overlapped in the front a bit.

This one came out better than the last one and I really think I might revisit the back of my stripey dress. I am now searching for a full skirt shirt waist dress pattern to make. I need a dress for my mother-in-law's wedding in April and I think I may go with a petticoat under my dress! I know scandalous. But the north of Scotland is an odd place and I'll stick out no matter how I dress. But it will definitely have a full-skirt.


  1. it is so beautiful! can't wait to see the dress you will make for the wedding :)
    have a great weekend!

  2. I love this! It looks fantastic and the fabric is great.

  3. Aww thanks! Its Ikea fabric and it was on sale! I haven't worn it yet though. I need spring to come quick.
