Well as promised here is the update! I finished day one of my challenge and it went pretty well! As I said I found the fabric on Ebay which means that you don't get to feel the quality. Luckily the fabric is pretty nice! I do love this shade of green and the pattern reminds me of a Cath Kidstone bag that I had many moons ago.
I found the fabric a little tough to cut out it is a cotton and elastine mix so very sturdy! and the design is a screen print which was a bit annoying as of course the white background kept wanting to peep through where I had stitched:( But the actual dress?
Not that I mind really, weekend fun is always good!
I ended up with quite a lot of fabric left from my two metres so I might be able to make a top. Today though I am going to be making Kate
in this cheerful stuff that I also picked up at Fabworks
