Dotti Angel Frockalong

I am a new blogger but am really enjoying the inspiration provided by all the other creative souls who choose to blog and of course I haven't found them all yet. How exciting.
Cassandra Madge and Scrappy N Happy are hosting a frockalong using Simplicity 1080 Dotti Angel frock pattern, so I thought I would give it a go.........now it has been sometime since I sewed a garment for myself but having miles of fabric in the cupboard and only having to outlay for the pattern I thought it was worth a try and if I hated it I could always wear it round the house....
Actually the lemon Moda fabric was a bargain from a bolt clearance sale (you had to buy the rest of the bolt for $20) This bolt had enough for a double bed quilt backing, this dress and I still have about 1/2 metre left ..... BARGAIN! Chez Moi pockets and scraps for binding

I still have to hem the dress and I think I will make a couple of extra pleats in the shoulders. Getting my Granny Chic on!! Thanks Cassie and Jess for hosting this frockalong and making me step outside my comfort zone....... looking forward to seeing the others.

  1. Wow, I'm so impressed. I think I'd rather rip a fingernail off than make clothes.
