I sewed my first dress!

I have sewn my first dress and I am SO excited about it! This is a really wonderful milestone for my dressmaking journey. It all started in a class back in February that my boyfriend organised for me as a Christmas present…. and it took me until now to finish. Doh! I guess I was a bit daunted by it but it feels brilliant now it is done and I am really to tackle the pattern again, but within a shorter time frame!

I have posted a video on my YouTube Channel, which you can see below. Give it a watch if you want to hear me chat about it in more detail and do some cheeky modelling. Keep scrolling for my sewing log and some photos!

Fabric: 100% cotton in a tan colour from John Lewis
What I like: The fit (now that I took it out after accidentally shrinking it!) and the colour
What I would do differently: different fabric as it creases like billio!
What I learnt: pre-wash your fabric!!
