Simple dress made with fat quarters!

I had bought some really pretty, pink Fat Quarters from Hobbycraft and had no idea what I was going to do with them, until I came across a fairly simple dress pattern on pinterest from the polkadotchair.

I am not the world’s most patient or successful sewer, but I have my mother’s sewing machine so decided I would give it a go!

Here is my first attempt:










Pretty good for me, even if I do say so myself!

It took me a couple of hours, but probably would have been quicker if I had known a) how to use the sewing machine or b) had any dressmaking pins! and c) didn’t keep running out of thread!

After my success I decided to make a nice winter print one for her as well.

When it is done I will post about the entire method from start to finish.

Hopefully the next one will be even better! And fingers crossed I will have it done for Christmas!
