Here I am on sewweekly. I am so pleased to have a post up. As promised, here is the inside of my dress:

Even better, I hemmed the dress using vintage hemming tape:

 This tape was sent to me as part of a sewweekly swap last year, I was so pleased to get to use it. The hand sewing took a couple of hours in front of the tv and was worth all the hassle, the dress came out really well.

Lesson learnt: take your time and have an end result to be proud of!


  1. Beautiful, beautiful.. What a great job you did on this dress. The inside looks fantastic ..I am so proud of you. THe dress looks so pretty on you.. and you were a very pretty little girl too!!
