dresses for sale

Dresses, dresses, dresses.  I am taking a break from quilting to enjoy dressmaking for little girls.  After watching the lovely and inspiring Great British Sew Off, I decided I shouldn’t spend any more money buying cute dresses for my girls and instead I could make them! 

It has been awhile since my dressmaking course (adult education course which I loved for three years), so I was lacking in confidence.  I bought a girl’s pattern ranging from 12 months to 5 years from Etsy (I definitely like Etsy original patterns rather than the usual Butternick, Simplicity, New Look, etc patterns.  I find Etsy is more modern and fun in comparison.).  The pattern was easy to follow and after the one I felt confident enough to start making my own patterns, using the bought one for sizing purposes. 

After making a few I felt especially brave and reserved the local café window for two weeks in July to showcase (and hopefully sell?) my dresses.  So the pressure is on! 

Over the next few weeks I’ll detail the dresses and show some pics…
