Further adventures in dressmaking!

As some of you may already know, I've (Caroline) been trying my hand at beginners dressmaking, with varying success! However, thanks to the wonderful new magazine Love Sewing I was inspired to keep trying and have a go at their Brigitte dress pattern that came free with issue 1.

Armed with my scissors, tailors chalk, some gorgeous fabric by Riley Blake  from their Unforgetables collection called Floral Pink...

And the rather wonderful Tabitha and Julia from Thread Carefully  and their step-by-step sew-a-long I set to it!

The instructions were easy to follow, the blog helped immeasurably when it came to the construction and the finished result is rather pleasing!!

What do you think?

Issue 2 has just come out and I rather fancy having a go at the blouse on the front cover...



  1. Caroline I love your dress!
    Have you read issue 5? I'm in there too and my sewing room!
    I love that mag...and all those free patterns too.
    See you soon
