Fabric: Windham "Swim Team"


This is the other dress I made last Sunday evening, which is sadly the last sewing I've done lately - this week has just been one of those stupidly busy ones with too many things to fit in to each day.
I've managed though, by telling myself to keep going when I've wanted to give up on something, to skip the gym or to reschedule my blood donation. I guess I sort of thrive on being busy.

Dress: Handmade (Simplicity 2444)

Petal Pusher wedges: Poetic Licence (Irregular Choice)
This dress is just another Simplicity 2444, which has been my pattern of choice for a while now. I seem to go through phases with the things I make, favouring one pattern for a little while before deciding that I fancy a change and moving on to something else. I'm hoping to find some time for sewing again next week as I've got quite a lot of fabric recently which I can't wait to get made up!

  3. You make such beautiful dresses and use the prettiest patterns <3 My aim is to make a cat print dress. I discovered a website that just sells cat print fabric, which is crazy cat lady heaven, now I just need to learn how to sew a dress.

  4. I adore the dress, it's so flattering. Great sleeves and love the length of it. It's really the perfect dress- why don't these exist in shops!?!

    1. I love the fact that although it's mostly blue there are enough colours int he print that it will go with most things!
