African print dress

This is a dress I made recently using “very easy” Vogue pattern V8468. Very easy in this case meant I used three pattern pieces.

The fabric is an African cotton print which I found in the Fancy Silk Store in Birmingham. A really beautiful alternative to all the floral prints that have been around recently. Here’s a detail…

I’m always concerned that the inside of a garment that I’m making is as neat as the outside. I always try and hem seam allowences where ever I can.

I also had the opportunity to do a thread button loop and fabric covered button. Both of these turned out beautifully 🙂

And I’ve still got enough fabric left to make a skirt 😀
