I made this dress as a practice run for a blue version I want to make based on the dress Katniss wears in the reaping scene in the Hunger Games.
I used the New Look pattern number 6069, view C. The fabric is half of a double dovet cover I found in a charity shop, don't think it cost me more than £2.50 total.
I'm really pleased with the result, Love this shape on me, think it's great. I actually bought a similar tea dress in blue last year!
I've had one problem with it, and that is that the right sleeve doesnt fit right, and has ripped. I fixed it once, but it happened again. Next time I want to fix that, so I need to research how.
Fabric: cotton sheet from a local charity shop
Notions: 22" zip
Challenges: I found putting this dress together quite hard actually, so all of it! But I'm glad I did it so next time it'll be easier
Hours: Ages! I did this over a couple of months because it was quite hard.
Cost: £1.25 for the fabric, £1ish for the zip
Do it again?: Actually, that is the plan, I've got a blue cotton ready.
