So here it is! My very first dress made by my own fair hands... I had a little help from my friends but I am pretty pleased with my first attempt at dressmaking.
I bought a Very Easy Vogue pattern - see here: voguepatterns.mccall.com/v8241-products-5032.php?page_id=856 and decided to make my very own 70s inspired maxi dress. I bought the fabric from Fenwicks Department Store in Leicester as they have a great haberdashery department along with the rest of the things I needed to make up my sewing kit.
It was a little tricky as the dress is fully lined and has an elasticated waist and a belt that cinches it in.
I teamed it with my tan platform heels from Topshop and this floppy camel unstructured hat, also Topshop.
I think I'm going to try and make a shift dress next... Keep your eyes peeled!
