Pattern: Colette Crepe
Fabric: 3.5m floral cotton lawn from Fabric Land, £3.99 per metre
How long did it take?: I'm sorry I have NO idea, I started it 4 weeks ago and probably spent a couple of hours or so a week on it. This has taught me a lesson - write it down! I promise to write down exactly how long every project from here on out takes
How much did it cost?: Less than £18 plus the pattern (£12)
Any off-piste sewing/alterations?: Nearly every seam est français, even the side seams with the pockets in, this was my sewing teacher's idea and I was easily convinced because french seams are so chic! This lead to some interesting conversations about how to finish the pocket edges.
Would you do anything differently next time?: I might try and lower the neckline a touch, I think it would suit me better and inch or so lower. I'd also like to try making one with the bodice and skirt in different colours.
Would you make it again?: Definitely, I want a polka dot one and a striped one.
How many pins (out of 5):
