I'm calling this my "Sunday-Monday" dress, because I sewed it up on Sunday to wear on Monday (today), and ignored all other chores in the process!

I made this up in a lovely printed cotton I bought in Leons Chorlton last weekend.
I'm pretty happy with it. Honestly I should have made more of an effort and adjusted the front to accomodate my bust better, but there is a reason this blog is named "Lazy Seamstress". I thought I might get away with it, and I spose I have but only just...the buttons and buttonholes are right on the edge of the placket, silly lazy me. I never learn, this kind of mistake will really bother me, unyet I knew it would probably be an issue even before I started cutting out.

On the whole though, a lovely pattern, nice to sew up, and a lovely flattering easy summer dress.

Don't be shy, say hello!


  1. It looks great!

  2. Love it and yay to you for ignoring the chores!!

  3. Gorgeous! Really nice pattern. It's funny, when I scroll through Pinterest, I know before I see the 'pinner' which pins are from you. Most times when I think 'oh that's a nice dress/shirt/skirt', they're pins from you!

  4. Love your dress! I've been thinking about making myself a summer dress and I think you might have given me the push I needed!


Hi, I love to hear from readers, hate to think I'm talking to myself here, so don't be shy say hello!
