Black and White and Red All Over

Penguin biscuit jokes are the best.

Quick post here today. I’ve got a pretty simple make to share but it’s definitely easy to wear.almond rock dixie diy ballet dress black and white

This is another Dixie Diy ballet dress. After my horse print version I knew I’d be making a few more as they’re great with tights and cardigans for work.

The black and white print jersey is from the rag market in Birmingham. It was £1 a metre and I still only used two metres for the print matching along the seams.

I cut out and overlocked the whole thing in under two hours.

I wish I’d used a straight skirt instead of the rounded one from the pattern so the dress would have a clean straight hem. Oh well. I’m not losing any sleep over that!

My mum says she thinks the dress is a little Christmassy. I suppose those geometric shapes look a bit like snowflakes.

Right then! That’s enough from me.

I’ll leave you be and let you enjoy the rest of your weekend.

  1. Looking at this I get some serious fabric envy over here… I absolutely love black&white at the moment. I can see where your mum is coming from, but I don’t think it’s too christmassy. It rather reminds me of those winter jumper knitting patterns – in a good way! You look gorgeous!
