the easter egg dress

DSCN0215

same pattern as before – Coco by Tilly and the buttons (links in prev post). sewn on my new overlocker, which was marvellous.

fabric – loop backed sweatshirting from ebay, cost £14.50 in total! also teeny tiny ric rac from paper and string (link in sidebar) 30p per m. slight stretch in the fabric but good structure, so really suits the dress length.

GIANT POCKETS!!! were my addition  i fancied something a bit different on something so plain, so i added the optional neckline and cuffs in the pattern and cut out some sloped giant pockets, handstitched the ric rac and voila. giant pocket dress for collecting eater eggs and what not.  it’s super cosy and apart from possibly looking like a choir robe (?) i am pretty pleased.
