tartan!


Just a quick post to share this tartan dress which I made today. Absolutely ages ago I was scouring the vintage and second hand shops in Dorking and found a men's nightshirt. It was absolutely huge but I loved the print and it was a complete bargain at just £3 so I bought it thinking I could do something with it. 

Today was the day I finally did something with it! Regretfully I didn't photograph it beforehand! However I created the dress by removing the sleeves to create a short sleeve top, fixed the buttons, nipped it in a little bit as it really was excessive in size and then created a belt using the sleeves! Not too bad I don't think for a quick afternoon sewing session!
