Even though this is my second post today, I just had to show you all this super awesome little frock that I just made myself. I posted a couple of days ago, on my list of this I loved, this super cute t-shirt dress from Boden.
Simplicity 5133 (1981) and a little over a meter of this cute raspberry red, purple and light pink stretch in hand, I hit the machine.
How cute is this????
In fact, it was downright easy! I especially love setting in sleeves with stretch fabric - no easing, just stretching - yay!!
Now I pretty much followed the instructions on the pattern, but added about 12 inches to the bottom to make it a dress. I cut a size 12 (as that was the smallest size in this pattern), but probably could have cut an 8 or 10. I also had a lovely friend's copy of Sew U Home Stretch by Wendy Mullins, to help guide my sewing experience.
forced to squeeze garments from them.
