Too Impatient To Sew

Hah, this is the only attempt I have ever made at making a dress from a pattern, being impatient I do not like to spend a lot of time planning things out. I am more suited to the Vivienne Westwood approach to dressing, to grab a piece of material wrap it round and add a belt, but that does not always give the look your after.

Yeah it totally looks like that?!

I wanted to get the wallpaper in

Now hopefully one day when I a more patient I will be able to create more, or probably easier just buy a dress making mannequin and pin away. Oh and I have just rediscovered my love for turquoise jewellery, I need more to distract from the unfinished hemlines!


  1. beautiful!
    i just love turquoise jewellery! ♥

  2. Well I think it looks great, especially for someone who doesn't like to sew. I don't have the patience for sewing, either, yet I love to knit! At least I can watch TV when I'm knitting - sewing machine is too loud for that. ;]

  3. Hivenn: Thanks!x

    Miss Twinkle: Turquoise jewellery is gorgeous x

    Andi: Thank you, glad you cannot see the loose threads! Oh I like to knit but I can do one stitch and I have only ever made scarves that my boyfriend refuses to wear hah x

  4. I think it looks great too! It doesn't have to look exactely like the pattern all the time, I think it's more important to be creative! :)

  5. Dial V: Thank you, yeah I suppose it's just me being creative hah x
