All talk and no trousers (dress)

Ok, I'm a wimp. I have chickened out of making this:

The Japanese characters made my eyes go fizzy, I'm not sure I can tackle it on my own! I'm going to make the blouse version instead, seeing as Kate at M is for Make kindly gave us lots of tips in her recent sewalong, and I won't feel so alone in my quest with her virtually by my side. 

I'm making it with this fabric also from M is for Make. Ta to Jane for suggesting a voile. 

I've set aside Saturday as sewing day, so fingers crossed my fabric arrives by then (nothing like cutting it fine). 


  1. I'm sure a blouse version will be beautiful with such a great fabric find!

  2. Ooh, the fabric is gorgeous, I love those voiles. I think you'll be fine, Kate's posts are fantastic, and if you're making the same top she did you can just copy every tiny thing she does! The Japanese characters hurt my eyes too. x

  3. Hi there!

    Couldn't find a way to email you but I think you may have mentioned the North London Vintage Market in an earlier blogpost, thanks for that!

    I'm one of the organisers, just to let you know it's back on Saturday June 4th and there should be lots of amazing vintage fabric there, hope you can make it!
