Number 23: Make a dress myself

A little later than expected (I hadn't planned on moving house, or job!), I took on the challenge of making my own dress.  Apart from making fancy dress costumes, I'd never made any clothing for myself.  It's something that I've wanted to do for a long time, but never had the confidence that I'd be able to follow the pattern on my own.  Luckily for me, Lisa Comfort from Sew Over It had just put her first sewalong on her blog so I wasn't by myself at all!


The pattern and blog posts made the steps really easy to follow and, although it isn't perfect, my dress is wearable which I think is an achievement for a first attempt!
