The 365 Day Challenge

My goal is to create something every day using something from my craft cupboard. I am a self-confessed fabric addict and just love to fossick through thrift shops and find treasures.

So here goes. Live, love, recycle and get crafting.

Day 196 - Dress

I made the dress. So excited! Love it to bits. My days are always a little bit brighter when I make something from scratch on my sewing machine. It's absolutely me in a way only something I made myself could be. I think there might even be some nice sunny days this week to wear it.

I used the vintage fabric I found at the op shop last week, and some other scraps I had lying around, so I have a new and custom made dress for less than $10.


  1. Very cute. Gorgeous fabric. Lovely summery dress.

  2. Its fabulous Sharon, yes very you! Did you use a particular pattern?

  3. Thanks. Erica, this is the first time I've made my own pattern. It's a really simple design so I just drew the shape and added some facings.

  4. That's beautiful, absolutely beautiful!!!


  5. That dress is cute and like the prints. :)
