For many many years i have been scared of using patterns......and completely avoided them. Whenever i make stuff i make it up myself and have several attempts until i get it right. Well i decided enough was enough!! it was time to conquer this and learn. In my favourite store they were having a sale on kids patterns and i went for one that only needed a metre of fabric to keep the cost and yes i admit, difficulty down. It is a very simple a line dress and it came out a treat. I was so proud of myself I made three in one day.
