The challenge was to make an outfit from a pillowcase or a pair of pillowcases and as luck might have it I had two pairs of pillowcases that I'd been thinking of making dresses from. I chose the yellow flower brushed cotton pair to make the dress from. I used the Burda top I made for the Sew Weekly meet up as the base for the top half of the dress and my self drafted a-line skirt pattern for the bottom. I've used no fasteners whatsoever, it's just a pull on dress, so there's some fit issues I'm thinking of rectifying but at the moment they're solved with a trusty wide belt. I'm thinking of shirring the back and putting some darts in the bottom front to get a better fit.
So here's the photoshoot:
|Oh Fizz what are you doing go away|
|Fizz stop crying we're only taking pictures|
|Oh for goodness sake what's so interesting in the corner?|
|And now she's hiding|
|Nice little hidey hole under the telephone table|
I'm really glad I did this weeks challenge as it was quick, only a couple of hours as had already unpicked all the seams and it's such a cheery dress even though I need to do some tweaking on it I feel it's a success...possibly because it's wearable and it fits! haha! ;)
Now I just need the weather to wear it!
