Blog love- ruffled bib dress tutorial from Made by Lex

I stumbled across this gorgeous ruffled bib dress tutorial on Lex's blog, Made by Lex. It is so my style and I just adore it. I'll be adding it to the long list of projects I'd love to sew if only there were enough hours in the day!

 I think projects like these make it seem easy to get started with sewing clothes which is still a little daunting to me.I'm great at sewing things in my 'comfort zone' (bags, purses, accessories) but I am a little bit pathetic about sewing a skirt or attempting a dress. I think it's partly because I don't want to ruin beautiful fabric and partly because I'm not good at reading patterns (due to a lack of experience). Either way I need to stop being a chicken and just get started because I'd love to make this dress!

What projects do you have on your 'wish list'?

  1. Hey! That dress is SO CUTE! I love the colors, too. As for my wish list - everything is on it. I stink at sewing so much I finally gave up. That, and my sewing machine makes me so angry I want to throw it out a window. I'm pretty sure it was a Walmart Special - but it was a gift, so I don't know for sure.

    Usually I just want to put some pretty fabric inside a crocheted purse or wallet and it would be easy enough to sew such a square if I had a machine that worked. Oh well - maybe I should put THAT on my wish list! Haha.


I love comments and will always try my best to get back to you and return the love. x
