Lady Bug Says ... Sewing My 1st Dress! Stage 2

Evening Lovelies!

Now I don't want to blow my own trumpet, but I am bloody proud of myself! The truly horrible weather on Sunday meant I was stuck indoors all day so took the opportunity to make a bit more progress with my dress!

5 hours, plenty of pinning and re-pinning, lots of scratches and a fair bit of swearing later this is how far I have now got!

My first zip!

Plenty of seams!

It's by no means perfect, but I am beyond happy with it!

All I have to do now is the hem, slightly adjust the neckline and take it in a little under the arms.

I have got over my fear of clothes making and will definitely be using the pattern I made for dresses in the future! Next on my list, the perfect maxi dress!


  1. Oh wow, haven't you done well with it?! I don't dare attempt patterns and zips and stuff yet.

  2. Thats beautiful :) you are truly talented I would love to make clothes X

  3. You should be proud! I'm very impressed :)


  4. Get You! So you should be.

    What a clever thing to achieve, I for one am blown away. It looks stunning, can't wait to see it on. Wish I could make something.

  5. This dress looks amazing, I love the fabric you've chosen! I keep meaning to teach myself how to make my own clothes but I'm lazy and have never quite got round to it yet!

  6. wow! that is so truly amazing. Congratulations!! I have been learning and I'm having a problem with a straight hem haha!! I think i must be putting the wrong pressure on it or something. oh well! I will keep trying and maybe one day I will get to make a fabulous dress like you did! :)

  7. Wow it looks great! I wonder if I'll ever get round to doing mine it's such a daunting prospect, but you've given me some inspiration!

  8. You did an incredible job! I'm so impressed!


  9. this is really great! I'm near completion on my first dress too, it's exciting! has taken HOURS so far though!x
