Summer Dress

Finished: 19th July 2009


Project: Summer Dress for me
Started: 18th July 2009
Expected completion: Complete!

This is a start, during and end post all in one as I finished this before I got around to posting that I was starting!

In a few weeks I’ll be somwhere where it is summer. Of course I now need a summer dress! My friend Kylie is very good at making shirred dresses and said they’re quite easy so I thought I’d make one for me using a stash of Heather Bailey’s, Pop Garden that’s been waiting a year for the ‘perfect project’. I’m very pleased with the result.


Thanks Kylie for the inspiration!
