The other day I went to Spotlight when they had 30% off.
I picked up some fabric for a sew along I am taking part in at the end of the month.
While I was there I obviously checked out the the cheap trolley and I found some lovely fabric for $1 a metre. With my 30% discount I paid 67 cents p/m so I bought the whole roll.
Unfortunately there was only 2.5 metres left.
Anyway I have been busy sewing up a storm with it.
First project was a Lula Maxi Dress.
I made some small adjustments to the pattern because I added in some pink lace I salvaged off an old top which was thinner than the band should be. This made the dress a little shorter than it should be.
Next time I will add the extra length as I think this dress would look amazing down to the ankles.
With a whole lot of fabric left I decided to try my hand at designing my own dress for my baby.
I took the bodice from this pattern as a guide for the size. I came up with this dress.
I just love the way it tuned out!
I made a size 2 which is a little bit big for her now but we are still a few month from the warmer weather so I'm sure it will be spot on by then.
I still have just under a metre of fabric left and I wanted to make a matching top for my 10 year old. Do you think I could convince her to wear it? NO WAY!!!
Maybe I could make a little something for myself with it :)
