Last make of 2013

After doing some sewing for Christmas, I really needed to do something for myself so I dragged Stuart and Faith to the fabric shop not knowing what I wanted to make. The minute I laid eyes on this viscose jersey I knew it was going to be a wrap dress so I trawled through Etsy and found this pattern from Mind, Body and Sew. (Edit: link changed to their new website)

It went together so easily; I almost had it finished in one night, but then my twin needle decided to misbehave and try out some pintucks. At 11 o'clock at night I wasn't prepared to argue with it so in the morning the awesome sewcialists came to my rescue on twitter and with a bit of interfacing the channelling wasn't so bad.

I wore it on a night out with the family the other night and didn't have any wardrobe malfunctions (something I always worry about after flashing the tv man while wearing one!). I say this a lot, but I really do intend to make some more of these.

    3. You really do, it's one of those things you don't really know you need until you have it, if that makes sense. You won't regret it
