Ever since last year, when I made this dress I’ve been getting heaps of requests for a tutorial. But if you have been reading my blog since then, you’ll know that pretty soon after I made it I found out I was pregnant, got incredibly morning sick and took a break from blogging… and totally forgot about the dress! Until I wore it again when I was preggers and remembered I’d promised a tutorial – and it’s been on my to do list since then!
As a side note I get a huge number of emails about beginner sewing projects- and pretty much everyone wants their first sewing project to be some sort of party dress… I generally recommend against dresses as beginner projects because there’s so much involved – BUT I think this dress would actually be do-able as a beginner project, as you’re really only sewing the skirt part, and you’re using a tank top for the top.
So if you’d like to make one yourself, click on the link below and download the tutorial. (I know it’s a giant button, but there’s always someone who can’t find the hyperlink so I’m trying to make things easier!) Happy sewing!
ps. please excuse my weird hair… like I said the other day it got super frizzy by the end of a day at the fair!
