Beautiful fabrics on your dresses, Helen. The last dress I made in the early 2000's has just been cut up to make bedding for my little grandaughter's doll's cot.

Very impressed, Helen - love the styles and the fab-rics! They look great on you.

My sister does a lot of dressmaking, and she has her mannequin dressed in one of her old bras, stuffed to fill it out, and big knickers padded out to make the waist/hips. It's much closer to her own shape and reduces the number of fittings.

Thank you! I’ve just got back from holiday, and had so many compliments about this Frida Kahlo fabric dress that I made. I was absolutely thrilled!
