I made a dress! Look! A whole dress! Made by me! Isn't that awesome?!
Ok, so I followed this tutorial to turn an old vest top and a piece of fabric into the dress. Now you've seen the tutorial, its quite easy right?!
The lady in the blog says it took her 30 minutes to make. If I hadn't kept snapping the thread whilst trying to make the ruffle, I think it would have taken me the same. It took me an hour because I had to keep unpicking and trying to sew again. Three times I tried to make the ruffle! In the end I left some of it ruffled and just sort of folded the rest of the fabric into pleats!
(Any tips on making ruffles so I don't keep snapping the thread?!)
So yes, I'm back in love with my sewing machine, and I'm hoping we'll have lots more adventures together soon!
