Polka dot tea-dress

I saw a fabulous tea-dress pattern in a magazine and wanted to give it a go. 

Then I spotted some polka dot fabric that I just knew would work well with it.  Blue has always been my favourite colour so that also helped.

So I made the dress.

I don't use patterns very often as they don't always tell me what I want to know.  I tend to sew the way that I cook - 'let's see what happens if I do this...' so to actually try to follow somebody else's instructions tend to be an interesting experience to say the least.

I also tend to use the 'visualise it first and then sew' method.  The more I sew, the more I know!

It formed the basis for my outfit for my first proper stall last night - more to come...
