My Creative Space.


I've been home sick these last 3 days. Nothing too major, just a yucky cold. But it's keeping me here at the moment! Since I'm so bad at being sick and resting, I've actually gotten a lot of sewing done. So that's good.

I've been actually looking at all of the patterns I've gotten at op shops, instead of just having them. This dress is the first thing I've made. I did it just off the pattern, no alterations and it fits great! What are the chances?! I think that I'll be making a lot more of these. Some knits maybe? And with a fuller skirt I think. I've also 90% finished a little shirt thing that kind of fits. As most other things, it's too big in the chest area. I'll have a go at altering that I think though.

For more creative spaces head over to Kootoyoo!

Get well soon! The dress looks great - you've inspired me to actually look and USE the patterns I find in the op shops too, instead of just having them! x

Great colours! And super cute.
This dress is very similar to one I was thinking of patterning from scratch.
