This is the first project I have created from my book titled 101 great ways to sew a metre of fabric. It is the first item of clothing I have made for somebody else, although it was easy to make it was nerve-racking making sure I got it just right, thankfully my Sister in-law was thrilled with it 🙂
The bodice pattern piece was supplied and the dimensions were given for the skirt. The book suggests using bias tape for the edging and the straps (just to increase my love for bias tape), I decided to use the same colour as one of the flowers on the material, rather than beige or cream just to mix it up a bit. The skirt has a casing through the centre for the elastic, which can be adjusted to suit.
It was so simple to make, just one or two tweaks depending on who you are making it for and away you go. Ideal for a summer nightie, or an everyday top with a classic pair of jeans.
My daughter loves it so much she wants me to make her one too, watch this space…..
Really like this and, as you say, perfect for a summer top or nightie!
Thank you 🙂 I am pleased with it, as I didn’t really know how it would turn out without having a pattern to follow. But it can easily be adjusted to suit different people.
