    That’s Sew George

    Ah puns. I’m a big fan but I know they’re not for everyone.

    So here’s a dress to help you forget about any lingering pun rage!

    Hares looking quizzical and fat and ready for action? Guaranteed to cheer you up.

    Now take a look at this… It’s a duvet dress!

    This fun hare-print duvet set was sent to me by George at Asda to prove bedding isn’t just for beds. Or just for cats.

    I wanted a pattern that would preserve as many of the hares as possible.
    I chose the Butterick 5351 bodice with the band removed which I used in the Sew Dolly Clackett challenge and the Butterick 6167 skirt from my recent Gertie dress.

    The fabric is ever so slightly sheer so the dress is fully lined with sage green anti-static lining. I also added a really nice deep hem since there was enough fabric from the double duvet! The deep hem with the slightly crisp polycotton makes the skirt hang really well.

    It’s a really fun dress to wear, especially with the big swooshy skirt. And I wonder if anyone does a double take when they see me?

    So there you have it. Would you sew with a duvet?
