Fletchers Fabrics York Love Sewing Magazine Ruby Dress Simple Sew

My First Ruby Dress!!

Hiya Folks!
Guess what I’ve managed to make and not made a hash of it…..a Dress at last!!!!!
I’ve used the ever so easy to follow Ruby Dress by Simple Sew which was free from Issue 4 of Love Sewing Magazine, see I am getting round to using my free patterns from magazines ๐Ÿ˜‰
If you follow this link here It’ll take you to the same pattern I’ve used here FREE for you to download and print!! How awesome is that?! ย 
Me and the Family went on a trip to Fletchers Fabrics of York and came across this delightful Woodland Animal Print in Cream and Navy, It was crying out to made into a Dress and a steal of a Price at ยฃ7.99 a Metre with it being 100% Cotton and 60″ wide. It Washed real well and feels real nice against the skin.
I didn’t had to alter the pattern much either as i measured as 10 in the bust with just a little bit of adjustment in my waist as its smaller than the measurements on back of the packet, sorry I’m blessed with a tiny waist! It doesn’t matter that much about the hip measurement as its quite a full circle skirt so it skims that bit which is awesome ๐Ÿ™‚
Love the sexiness of the V neck back, I had even managed to insert a invisible zip for the 1st time with ease too! So it’s a awesome day in the Kendall household!
So with myself being a newbie to sewing that was easy to follow, i can see myself making more of these!
Materials I’ve used:
2.5m of 60″ Wide 100% Cotton Fabricย 
50cm of Medium Weight Interfacing

16″ Invisible Zip – I had bought a 22″ zip without realizing but made it shorter no problem to fit ๐Ÿ™‚

Cream Thread

Ta ta for now!
