Dotty DIY Dress

Dress: Handmade, Boots - Schuh, Bag - ASOS, Hat & Sunglasses - H&M

I am not the best sewer but I recently wanted to make a casual dress in a similar style to the River Island dress that I posted about here. I couldn't find a cheap-ish sewing pattern in the style that I wanted so I got chopping, pinning and stitching. If anyone knows about sewing I would consider looking away now - I think I was sewing illegally, I didn't follow any rules and I broke the machine.

Although it didn't turn out exactly how I envisioned, I have worn it a few times and it is great for smart-ish summer wear. I'm going to (try) and make a new one with a different material. I will write about how I did it next time I make a dress just in case anyone would like to do similar - but you're only allowed to read it if you have no idea about sewing otherwise you will be horrified by my sewing methods of madness.

It's almost the weekend - woop-di-woop! Have a great one.

Lots of Love.
