Some serious stash busting for me this week. I made my first Derby dress by Christine Haynes. I love it and it is so versatile – I wore it to a BBQ on Saturday, then working at home, and walking the dog!
And then I made a Kelly skirt from a very small piece of vintage fabric, which I've had for about 3 years.
I lengthened it a bit and made a narrow waistband instead of the wide one given with the pattern. This was because I had so little fabric, but I prefer the narrow version. I find the wide one just folds over on me - I know, I should sit up straight!
Do you have a favourite summer dress pattern? I'm on the look out for more!
