Care Bears dress!

July 24, 2019

This summer I organised a Teddy Bear’s picnic at work, and decided to make myself a dress to tie in with the theme (any excuse for a novelty dress!).  I couldn’t find any teddy bear themed fabric that I loved, so decided to order a single Care Bears duvet set and use that instead.

For the pattern I thought I’d give the Simple Sew Sienna dress a try.  The pattern came free with Sew Now a while back.  The only thing I changed really was to cut the front bodice on the fold rather than have a centre front seam.

The pattern was great and sewed up really quickly and easily.  I was feeling very pleased with myself after trying it on and then when I tried to get it off, the zip jammed and broke!  I was absolutely gutted, and had to spend ages carefully unpicking it and reinserting a new zip.  I really loved wearing the dress though and got lots of compliments, plus it will double up as a dress to wear to an 80s themed party I’ve been invited to.

I think the pink hair is the finishing touch, what do you think?!
