Sometimes even a rushed project with all the ingredients for disaster succeeds and the result is a beautiful silk party dress.
I made the Saraste dress from the book Breaking the pattern for my mother from the lovely Atelier Brunette viscose.
I made a simple, pretty dress and a matching mask with an animal print fabric for my friend's nine-year-old daughter.
I made Sewaholic Nicola dress out of pretty crepe fabric. I have had this pattern for ages but only now got this dress done.
I made my daughter the cute fox pinafore dress from Burda 8/2018 130. I used orange baby cord, applique and embroidery to create the foxy details.
I made a 70s inspired dress out of Flowerpower denimlook sweatshirting that I was gifted by Zicca fabrics. Ruffles, denim and flowers work well together!

I made my daughter a Regency or Empire style outfit: a dress, a bonnet (a free pattern included!), bloomers and slippers. Read how it all came together.
I tried making the Shirtwaist dress from the Gertie's New Book of Better Sewing without making a toile. This taught me a lesson! The fit was not so good...
I tested the Sew Over It Kate dress pattern. The hidden button placket and the 4 slits in the skirt bring this vintage inspired dress into the 21st century.
