As I said in my first post I'm teaching myself to sew and I love dresses, I also follow (stalk) Dolly Clackett (aka Roisin Muldoon, awesome dress maker and all round cool person) on Instagram and more recently her blog http://dollyclackett.blogspot.co.uk/p/blog-page.html sew it only seams fitting (groan) that I take part in Sew Dolly clackett, a challenge created by her fiance and her friend of http://rhinestonesandtelephones.blogspot.ca as a sweet surprise for her. The idea basically being that you make a dress inspired by Dolly. Awesome :)
So what dress to make and what fabric? for many this is going to be mindblowing deciding the pattern and fabric as Dollys fabric choices are many and each one more gorgeous than the last. She also has several 'go to' patterns including the Emery Dress ( if you don't know what I'm talking about, what planet are you on?).
For little ole me ( get your violins out), I don't have to choose from much because well basically I'm skint, its cool don't feel sorry for me! I can't afford any new fabric or patterns right now but this does not mean I won't be taking part ooohhh nooooo.
The pattern, hmm.... I got this fab book from my lovely little brother and his adorable girfriend for Christmas and I've made a few variations of the dresses from it and I think one will be perfect with a few minor adjustments.
So thats what I'm going to do. I'm going to use the nautical fabric because I've eyed up the gingham for a summer dress.
I made a start but had to deal with this cuteness (pain in the arse)...
Happy Friday, Bye!
