  1. I love that fabric too and I adore the finished dress! Good stuff!

  2. Are you making all your own belts as well? I love the mission you’ve set for yourself.

  3. I’ve just discovered Sew Weekly – what a fantastic idea. I’d been having a similar thought about wanting to sew many more of my own clothes this year, but had been thinking it would be an achievement to sew one piece of clothing a month for myself. Your wardrobe will be bulging with loveliness by the end of the year – lucky you.
