Are you a Person-Who-Sews-Stuff?

I aspire to become a better sewer this year. 
Wait, is that what you call a person who sews stuff? A Sewer? It sounds weird. And I just noticed that it is spelt the same as sewer.... as in, drain with poo and wee in it. Gross..

Ok, so this year, I aspire to become a better Person-Who-Sews-Stuff.

I met and awesome Person-Who-Sews-Stuff at the blog meet the other day- 
Jos from Sew, Cook, Laugh & Live.
Jos' blog is great for newbie Persons-Who-Sew-Stuff like me. Her No Pattern required dress is just fantastic!

So, here is my attempt at Jos' No Pattern dress. I adapted an old hippie skirt I had. I'm pretty bloody happy with it!! Can't you tell by the slightly manic look on my face?
The dress is straight on the bottom- I think I am just standing funny. Or one of my legs is longer than the other.  Whatever.

I think I am going to make a million of these and burn all my other clothes. 
Or I might just throw them in the sewer. 
(Hee hee. See what I did there? That's a call-back, baby!)


  1. Your dress looks fantastic! I really need to sew more for me!
    I'm a Persons-Who-Sew-Stuff too :)
    Was that meet in Brissy? How did I miss it? :(

  2. Hi Cassandra. Thanks! Yep, it was in Brisbane- organised by the Hello Events girls. Sorry you missed it! We will have to see u at the next one :-)

  3. I love your dress! Yes, these dresses become addictive. I have 10 in total & 2 more cut out! Thanks for the shout out! xoxoxox

  4. Woot woo I love it!
    Are they house teapots on your bookshelves? Adorable!!!!!

  5. They are! I got them at a cute op shop near my inlaws in the UK, much to my husband's disdain. He thinks they are ridiculous. I think they are awesome.
