Mending: Space Dress Edition



It’s no secret that I love my space print Lilou. So much so that I am seriously thinking about making another space printed Lilou…


I learnt a lot of skills during this make, the main one being there is a reason patterns give a recommended zip length. I went for one way too short because it was in my stash, and as a result it was always super hard to get out of the dress. It was a proper, two person pulling and swearing job. Not the most glamorous of undressings…


I finally got ‘round to unpicking the zip and replacing it with a dress length invisible zip. I’m still not perfect on the zip insertion, but I’m definitely getting better every time which is nice.


Here are a couple of photos to illustrate the fact that I mended my problems. This was before I went to work and still had that lovely morning glow/ stunned look. You’re welcome.

  1. Looks fantastic, I need to make one of those, as I’m about to ‘launch’ in to the astronomy section of our physics course. Just wish you had more time, too many projects on the go. Certainly something to think about.
