...so to get my mind off of the tiredness and slight nausea, I set out to try a tutorial I'd found ages ago online. I'd always put off trying it because it seemed so difficult, but when I actually tried it, it wasn't at all as bad as I'd imagined.
It's the Pinwheel skirt by the Elle Apparel blogger Leanne Barlow.
I had this print tablecloth in black, white and gray, and I think measuring if I had enough fabric was the most difficult part of this project. Once I was convinced there was enough fabric, I simply cut out the pieces and sewed the skirt with the instructions on Elle Apparel. Then I still had enough fabric to make a top piece, so I turned the skirt into a dress.
The front detail with the pleats wasn't at all difficult to make, and aside from that it's pretty much just a normal dress.
So, what do you think of my tablecloth-turned-into-dress? :)
