Ready, Set, Sew!

I Just can't get enough if this dress it's a 1960's Marks and Spencer! It's so short that I have to wear bloomers underneath but it's worth it for the simple yolk shape and frills! Need to cut a pattern of this ASAP! Copying a design of a favourite piece is such a great way to make something you're going to adore, it's generally as simple as working out what the flat shape of the piece is and going from there. If your worried about quality start by using a old bed sheet, saying that I'm always making stuff out of old bed sheets, ones from the 50's, 60's and 70's are amazing. As are table clothes, what can you use?!!! If you like the print, weight, colour of the fabric then do it, whatever it's meant for forget it, reinvent its use, why the hell not? Go forth and sew!
