Miss Marlo Dress

Well I was going to make the Weekend Dress from this months Mollie Makes magazine but then I cut out the pattern and got in a pickle with it so decided to abandon that idea pretty promptly. 

I've not sewed anything for so long I think I had convinced myself that I had forgotten what to do, so I reverted to a tried and tested method instead - the Miss Marlo dress from Pip Lincolne's Sew La Tea Do book.

I've made this dress twice before and actually, with no buttonholes or zips, it's fairly straight forward to make. 

Version One

Version Two

I found some fabric I had bought from Abakhan and set to work.  I'll admit, I'm the worlds slowest sewer and I really took my time making this today.  I used my overlocker too for the seams and made sure everything matched up just right.  I even sewed the name of the fabric into the dress too as it's called Down to Earth and I thought that was nice!

Now the weather just needs to warm up so I can wear it, or rather them!
