A Dress for ME


I decided it was time to make a little something for me.

I have made a couple of these dresses before but this would have to be my favourite one out of all of them.

I am going to have to take a couple of pics with me wearing it because I have to say that it does actually look better on. The top of the dress hangs over at the waist whichs makes it perfect for hiding any little tummy bulges I might be carrying.

This fabric actually came from my husband Nan. It has a nice texture to it and just screams summer.

But being vintage fabric it has the disadvantage of time and flaws.
And worst of all, this was the piece I used for thr FRONT of my dress...grrrrr

Anyway the pattern I used was Burda 7913
I judged Burda quite harshly in this post and had forgotton I had used Burda for this dress.
I found this one to be easy to follow. The only change I made was to lengthen the top part of the dress by about an inch the allow a little extra room for the casing for the elastic around the waist.

I'm heading over to link up this dress at Pams Threading Your Way Womens Dresses Link Party so you should head over there to add any of your creations or just check out others ideas.

  1. The colours and style look so light, cool and Summery, Sherry. It looks like it would be very comfortable to wear, too. The tie finishes it off nicely. I like the style of this dress. It sounds like one for me... hiding tummy bulges. Thanks for sharing and for the mention!!!
