I had some material which I had bought for crafting, however the piece was 5 meters long and there is plenty for crafting as well as making a top for myself. I was going to down load a pattern from the internet, however I decided to check out the new haberdashery department at John Lewis and found myself perusing the dress making patterns. £5.95 later and I had my pattern. I chose a fairly easy one. I wanted to ease back into dress making.
It didn't take too long to cut out the fabric,and it didn't take too long to sew everything together. I completed the project over several days, but I'm sure it would have taken an afternoon from start to finish.
I decided to do French seams as it hides all the raw edges.

I enjoyed my revisit to dress making so much, I might just do some more.... when I have time that it!
