Lace Tank

So ridiculously easy and nice, I don’t know why I didn’t make it earlier.

Again, the Tiny Pocket Tank pattern has come in handy.

I bound the edges incredibly neatly, folding folded binding under so no raw edges would emerge through the lace.

I didn’t line the tank, but rather will wear with a singlet.

Cost
Fabric: 80cm mystery lace from Spotlight. I know I bought it on sale, but can’t remember the cost, so lets say $15. It was probably much less.
Pattern: Tiny Pocket Tank – used plenty of times now = Free.
Bias: made from off white cotton scrap fabric
Thread from stash
Total: $15 – but probably much less.

Treasure Pocket Dress

This little creation was made for Adele for her birthday.

I purchased the Liberty (Dora) a little while back from Shaukat. I actually purchased it with the intent to use it for Adele. This simple and cute dress seemed like a good choice.

The pattern is from Ottobre 1/2008 dress #15 Treasure Pocket dress.

I love a simple pillowcase dress and since the girl likes pockets, it was an easy choice.

I used grosgrain ribbon from the stash for the ties and self bias for the underarms – it’s just neater – and that’s about all.

She’s happy 🙂 Me too 🙂
