Look at my new dress!

I’ve spent all day sewing and I’ve loved it. Making pockets, binding, setting in sleeves… All things I’ve never done before. I’m so pleased with it!

It’s called the Kate dress and is a pattern (and fabric) from Sew Me Something in Stratford upon Avon. I added waist ties to it as I thought it might need them to add shape. Admittedly, if I made it again is probably go down a size and try to match the patterns better. But there are three different versions of the dress on the pattern to make so maybe I’ll try one of those.

Still, it’s a dress I’ll actually wear and I made it! Hurray!
