SEWN: I made a dress that looks like sleepwear



I only have myself to blame for choosing a fabric with a gaudy design. Well, I guess it’s still a good sewing practice for me, considering that each yard of the fabric was only 2AUD.

Will I wear it out? You can dare me to do it. I think I probably will do it at least once or twice before I start feeling awkward about it. 

This is the vintage sewing pattern that I used to make the dress. Perhaps I would look better in the dress if I were still a tween!

circa 1992

Oh, and before I forget, this is a pattern that I bought from the local Vinnies in Sydney. I got it for just 50 cents! 🙂

Note: I know I promised a crafting TUTORIAL, but the item that I made is missing. It’s a brooch or some sort that I made for my mum. My mum has no idea where that thing is right now. This is not the first time that something like this has happened. I am not very pleased…

  1. Hehe reminds me of the time when I made a top out of cheap fabric, then someone commented “whats that you're making, a pillowcase?” Lulz. Thats when I learned the importance of fabric choice.

    Maybe if you wear a cardi over it and sew a bow on the front of the dress it'll look more “outside-wearable”. 🙂
