I made a dress, Dressmaking with Angeline Murphy

I made a dress

Those of you who have followed me for a while will know that one of my goals for this year was to make a dress from scratch and improve on sewing. The gorgeous Angeline Murphy from the great British sewing bee was so kind and offered to teach me. I put together a video of the day which you can watch below to see how we constructed the dress. 

Simplicity Newlook 2247

If you would like to make this dress then the pattern we used was the Simplicity Newlook 2247 and we made dress B, We added in the little puff sleeve too. Angeline was so patient in explaining how to read the pattern, the importance of notches and how to measure correctly. It took us a day to make this dress and I was thrilled to with the finish on it. 

Check out the video here. 

Here are a few pics below of the finished dress
