Attempting A Simple Dress....

I have been attempting to learn to sew (amongst other things) and with the help of my very patient Aunt I am also learning the correct way of doing things - For example, I found myself ironing pattern pieces last night, which sounds far too much like housework for my liking.
Despite this I have all my fabric cut out, shoulder seams stitched and pressed open and the skirt mostly assembled.  Before I can do much more I need to get some interfacing but I am happy with the way it is looking so far.
Long Suffering Sewing Machine finally being used

Apparently you need a tidy and organized work space....

....hmmm well I may need a little work on that.

The pattern on the left is the one I am attempting in this gorgeous fabric...

...Chosen by madam herself! Very good taste!


  1. She's going to look so adorable in this dress. You know where I am if you need a helping hand...but I think you'll be fine.

    I can't wait to see the finished dress.

  2. I should be able to get it (hopefully) had to re-do the top because when I put the interfacing on I put it on the wrong edge (DOH!) the lesson here? Never try and sew when in pain.
