So I have finally finished my dress making course, the past nine weeks have flown by! Tonight I started sewing together dress number two, which I will continue to blog the progress of over the next few weeks.
Dress number one however, is complete hooray! Lined, zip inserted, invisible hem, over locked, facings attached, belt made - the whole lot! I am really so proud of myself for making it so well, I absolutely adore it. I can't wait to wear it out of the house (it will be worn to a wedding next week, where I shall be feeling rather pleased to be wearing a handmade dress instead of something from the high street!) And to think, this dress cost me less than £10 to make (not including all the hours of labour though!)
I really hope that I can continue to get better and better at making garments now. I would love to hear what you all think of it!
Here come the photographs...
I will also take this opportunity to share my latest news with you. In September, I will be embarking on a teacher training course and will be specialising in Textiles :) I am really excited/scared/nervous all at the same time! It's going to be a very tough year ahead, but it's time for a new challenge!
Bring it on.
