I finally made a dress! After many failed attempts at sewing clothing I managed to finish something, and it doesn’t look too bad either!

The pattern is from the book Sew La Tea Do by Pip Lincolne. If you are a beginner at sewing like me and are wanting to try your hand at clothing I recommend this book over those tricky patterns by Vogue and McCall’s. Pip explains things in plain English so you aren’t suffering trying to understand all the different acronyms at the same time as trying not to sew your leg holes together (I have done this before).

There are also some really cute sewing patterns for the home tucked away inside and a yummy recipe! Ok, I think I have convinced you enough!

Sorry about the blurry photos, I couldn’t keep my hand steady after a morning of non-stop sewing! Happy weekend!

    […] This was the first dress I’ve ever made and is still the most worn handmade piece in my wardrobe.

Plus, the pattern and instructions were the easiest I have ever worked with when it comes to clothing projects. I’m super keen to pick back up a few clothing projects that I started a while ago, including the Sassy Librarian Blouse from Craftsy! […]
