A very Happy Birthday today to my Mum, an avid reader of this blog. Have a super day.
Today, I'm ready to share my finished bed sheet dress with you. And here it is in all its glory.
I never thought it would turn out as well as it did. Even fitting the zip went smoothly.
It's a wonderful pattern, very clear instructions and a lovely style. This is the actual pattern.
It came to my attention from someone else's blog, I can't remember whose, but it was some time ago and they gave it a very good review. I've been sitting nervously on the pattern for a while until I plucked up the courage to make it with the bed sheet.
I love the pleats at the front of the skirt. It gives it a good flare.
The darts on the bodice ensure an excellent fit and it even has side pockets.
I made the size 10, which gives me a good fit around the bust but I think my waist is getting thicker as it feels rather snug here.
I like the look of the sleeves but they rather restrict arm movement.
I'm going to make the dress up again shortly with the lovely dress fabric I bought. I'll adjust for the waist but I think I'll make it sleeveless.
In the meantime, bring on the sunny weather I want to wear my bed sheet version.
