For the last couple is days, I’ve been sewing dresses. I found a cute pattern that is super easy to use and adaptable. It’s from the Prudent Baby website.
I’ve been using M’s old suits and cutting them up. My most recent one is grey with black detailing and I’ve added pleats instead of pulling the thread to make the fabric gather. I also finished the rough edges nicely to minimize fraying. Here’s how it looks.
I can’t wait to make more of these. The dress itself took under an hour to make. The buttonhole and buttons took just as long.
