Tablecloth to dress?!! Nooo!

This started out as lovely skirt kindly made up by a special friend who does these things.
Delicious, full skirt and O so feminine.
But was it good enough?
Too full for my petite 22 year olds taste.
So back to the cutting board time and again until we pulled most of the fullness out.
And I have to say it still looks delicious and feminine.
But it nearly killed me to have to cut such a perfect vintage cloth.
Never mind.
You win some and lose some.
My daughter looks gorgeous in a dress that is all her own design and now I have heaps of left over fabric to use as my heart desires.


  1. Oh that is a beautiful dress!
    ... and great fabric... look forward to seeing your creations using the off cuts.

  2. I find it so hard to cut into cloths too, but it has to be done to give them a new life. Gorgeously done Cherrie, x

  3. What a gorgeous dress and I love the fabric.

  4. It is very pretty as a dress. And as I was reading, I was thinking- leftovers- goodie! I'm certain they won't go to waste.


Thankyou for your kind thoughts. I appreciate and read everyone even though at times I may not be well enough to reply. Thankyou.
