It took me sometime before I eventually got round to making the dress, even though I had the fabric and lining.
This dress is so easy to make. I lined it in a contrasting coloured lining and 'bagged' it to enclose all the seams. This did make doing the hem a little tricky, but I went back to M's house and she helped. She also gave me a really good tip for doing hems. Stand in front a book shelve or something that has a horizontal straight line that you can use it as a guide.
The dress used 2 metres of fabric. My only criticism of it is that I cut the fabric too short making it more of a top than dress. I think it will look ok with leggings or jeans in the summer.
PS, Its impossible to do anything in my garden without a chicken getting in on the act!
