Liberty Ballet Dress

And I’m back!!

In a short summary, I was locked out of my blog over Christmas (I hate you Go Daddy) and then have been really really struggling to get photos of my finished makes during this horrible winter. But now I’m breaking through this by getting something shot and up on the blog, even if the photos are quite as I’d like.

This is a Dixie DIY ballet dress. It was a fantastically quick and easy make which is perfect for my hectic schedule at the minute.

The fabric is a Liberty jersey from Abakhan Fabrics that I picked up online. As always the quality of Liberty fabrics was exceptional. It’s a little spongy, medium-weight and with lovely vivid colours.

I top-stitched all the hems with my twin needle and used my overlocker to construct everything. The whole dress took maybe two hours in total.

So there we go. The silence is broken! I’ll be back again soon with something new.

    Your dress is gorgeous, you can’t beat liberty fabric.

  3. That fabric was a great spot! Looks lovely on you.
    Just wanted to say again what a fab job you’re doing on the magazine. The number and variety of patterns in each issue has snowballed, just wish I had more time to make them all up… Keep up the fab work, sure I’m not the only one who’s noticed 🙂

  4. In total agreement that fabric is fab!

  5. Very pretty! I thought it had been a bit quiet on here recently (not that I can talk!)

  6. Glad you are back, this is lovely. Great choice of fabric.

  7. This looks so great on you!

    And booooo, GoDaddy. If you’re not on a subscription plan, I’ve had good experiences with Dreamhost and Namecheap (that name is terrible) I’ve heard good things about Bluehost, too.

  8. This is so lovely!!!

  9. I love your version! I am going to have to add this pattern to my stash now!

  11. This fabric is so lovely!

  12. Gorgeous Liberty loveliness! I hope you don’t mind any blatant copying because I’m just about to head over to Dixie DIY and crack open some jersey I’ve been saving for ages.

  13. Welcome back! Love your pretty little dress!xx

  14. Yay, welcome back! Cute dress.

    Lovely Amy! I’ve had that print in a cord fabric for ages but just don’t know what to make with it. Your dress looks so comfy and I’m glad you fixed your blog problems. Welcome back!

  16. Glad to see you posting again! Don’t know how you would fit time in to sew for yourself when publishing a great magazine! I love it but it takes so long to reach us here in Australia and we are months behind 🙂
