With my new stash of fabric from the boot fair, and job lot of patterns from ebay I was ready to start on a new project. Although the pattern looks some what strange with the pattern on the dress overall I thought it looked rather cute, just right for a gardening outfit, I just loved the head scarf too!
This was my first old style pattern, no markings on the paper and basic instructions. I really enjoyed making this dress. I managed my first ever zip as well (50p from a charity shop)
In the end I felt a little sad because the button holes don;t match as well as I would have liked, and the arm holes are a little tight but because I love this dress so much and can imagine wearing it all summer long I will persevere with it and get it right!
The buttons to came from a boot fair too. All in all the dress only cost £4 to make including the pattern.
