My First Dress

Here it is the first thing I've ever sewed from a pattern!

Nice colour for a sack ;-)

I'm pretty happy with how it turned out except for the fit. It looks like a sack unless I wear it with a belt and even then the top doesn't fit quite right, it's a little too large and loose...

Me and my BBQ, we're chillin'

I didn't make a muslin or anything so I guess that's a lesson learned! Next time I think I'm going to trace the pattern onto some paper and do a rough fitting with that. 
I got some lovely Deer and Doe patterns in the mail recently which I can't wait to get started on. How cute is this top from Rue des Renards? I had to have the pattern :-)



  1. Coby you're amazing!!!

  2. VERY nice colour choice, and it looks like you lined it - that's pretty advanced for the first time sewing from a pattern.

    1. Thanks Rosemary :-) It is fully lined, which did make it a bit more tricky!


I love to hear from you!
