i have been pretending that i'm a dress-maker this weekend.
seriously, i am such a novice dress maker that i have only ever tackled pjs and more recently the staple dress before.
but having searched the high street for summer dresses for ruby and finding nothing and then seeing the gorgeous charlotte sporting a beautiful make from the equally gorgeous Leila's pattern, with my limited dress making skills i thought "i can do that".
and apparently i can!...as long as you don't look too closely at the wibbly wobbly shirring.
next up, full of false confidence after the relative success of a let's face it a rectangular dress, i opened up my newly delivered washi dress pattern thinking i was up to the job.
well whatdya know i was!
the only thing disappointing about the outcome of this top is that i didn't opt to make the full length dress...next time.
having made and successfully being able to wear this item (it actually fits...bust seams n all!) i am now a newly converted dress maker. i'm hooked!
i'm thinking i may even be up to tackling some of the pieces in the japanese books i have been collecting.
how difficult can they be?
over confident? moi?...
