Dress a girl


After the success of our last Southsea Sisters crafting session we will be meeting again in October to support this wonderful project.

So what will you need to bring?

  • approximately 1 metre of cotton fabric
  • an additional ┬ápiece of fabric if you’d like to add a contrasting band with matching arm hole binding and fabric tie
  • 2 metres double fold bias tape, or we can make some.
  • coordinating thread
  • scissors
  • pins
  • safety pins
  • a pack of elastic (about 1/2 inch wide)

There is a nifty tutorial here and also here.

You don’t need to be an amazing seamstress, you can be a complete beginner! If you have a sewing machine that you are competent with please bring it and be prepared to help others. I will provide an iron and board and a paper pattern.




I must stay focused

Arggh I truly have bitten of more than I can chew, hey thats alright though, sometimes it makes us more productive. My project for my Uni placement is going well, more on that later though.

I’m already getting excited about Spring/Summer fashion for 2012 and to stay ahead of the game can start making some dresses soon.

Loving Dr Martens collection for 2012…


More florals, yay I’m so happy I love vintage floral fabrics, check out Mod Cloth for these styles.





Buying dress patterns from Colette, find there UK stockist list here.


I also want to grow my hair, dye it red and get some more tattoos this year.
