Ta dah!!!

Ladies and gentlemen,

After what felt like the Gobi desert of craft these last few months, I finally have a finished project to reveal!!You may remember that my first handmade dress back in September last year was a labour of love (and frustration) but that thanks to my lovely friend Heather who had guided me step by step the dress was a success and sent me on a crafty high.

The next challenge was going to be recreating the magic on my own this time, not for myself (because of baby bump) but for a friend back in Glasgow whose birthday was in April. Knowing my own sewing limitations (and my patience...), I decided to go for a more simple design for the dress this time to limit the (pardon my French) co** up opportunities. Some tartan light cotton fabric was bought online and THE dress was created over the 4 days Easter weekend:

So yes, it did not go all smoothly and I have learned a lot making that dress so that the next solo project should look slightly less handmade but... I DID IT!! I made a dress on my own!

So now, my poor friend Ashley has to actually be seen in public wearing it...poisoned chalice??

Some actual talent can be here over at Wendy's!

I'm certain your friend Ashley is appreciating this labour of love very much. Well done on your second dress!
