Anyway, that aside, I finished the dress today. Hares this time!
The fabric for this was - guess what? - another sale downie cover. It cost £7 for a King size cover and I got the whole dress out of one side so that makes it a £3.50 dress - plus thread (£1.70) and zip (83p) and hook and eye (from my stash)! £6.03 for a (unique) dress? That's not too shabby!
The pockets have hares inside them. What fun! :o)
It's a bit late in the year to be making sleeveless dresses but Joanna assures me she has a cardigan to go with it so the dress won't need to hang in the wardrobe until next summer. :o)
