For my 21st birthday my Nana gave me her old old sewing machine and some money to buy some fabric with, and I have finally finished my first project with it!
I love this fabric. The colours grabbed me. Traditionally, none of them are supposed to suit each other, but the boldness of this piece means that they go amazingly together.
Truth be told, I had a basic dress pattern, but really had no idea what I was doing. It took me all of two hours, and I only had to unpick one section and basically made it up as I went and tried it on a billion times throughout the process.
My husband chose the length on me, and pinned it in place.
I am super happy with the way it turned out and can't wait to make more items just like this one in the lead up to summer!!
