Sewing inspiration V8723

2 May

It’s not that I don’t have any original ideas but I like to see if other people have had better ideas. For example there is nothing unsensible with googling other people’s V8723 dresses.

For instance Spatastic’s yellow version is cute but not my colour and it’s good to know where she had problems.

Jorth’s spotty version captured my attention because I’m a crazy spot fiend.

And though I’m not brave enough to wear a totally white dress this version by Terri is so girly and pretty I’d like to twirl around in it in a field of daisies.

Ahem back to reality. I think I’ll make this out of a fairly sturdy cotton from ikea.

And if it goes well I’ll remake one or both of these two…

God I love a good pop of stripes or a clash of spots!
