My second dress for the year is this floral coral linen shift dress which sits just past my knees, making it super comfortable to wear to work.
My first clothing project this year was creating this fun, flowey, summery dress. I got in just in time to wear it to Valentines / my mums Bday lunch this past weekend. My amazing boyfriend also got me a bunch of roses! Very spoilt! I’m sure he’s loving me saying that too.
Description: Very loose-fitting, pullover dress which has elastic at the neckline and waist. It also has a number of variations for the sleeve and hem. In long and short versions.
Pattern: Butterick 6451
Material: Rayon material from Spotlight
It’s pretty amazing that you can google whatever type of sewing pattern you want these days and find some gorgeous free designs. This Madeline Dress from Sewing Rabbit is such a cute little design and easy to find and download. My friends little girl just loves dresses that she can twirl in, so I figured with the large gathered skirt this dress would be perfect.

Fabric: Cotton skirt and Jersey Cotton top
Pattern: Beginner level
Description: Form fitting sheath dress with great inline styles and pockets. Perfect for work, evening or casual wear.
Pattern: BurdaStyle Seamed Dress

You can’t really tell from the photo below but I’m soooo excited to be posting my second dress for 2019. I’ve had a great start to the year and that’s mostly because of the people that I have in my life right now. It’s amazing how much you grow as a person when you surround yourself with positive, influential people who inspire you to be the best version of yourself.
To make things even more incredible my good friend, who got diagnosed with stage four cancer two years ago is almost in remission. He still has a long way to go and fortnightly cancer treatments but it’s the results that all of us hoped for but didn’t see coming. Last year he was even asked to tell his story at the Cancer Councils annual White Orchard ball, which made us all so proud!
Description: Semi-fitted dress has partially lined yokes, seam detail, no side seams, side front pockets, front exposed zipper and topstitching.
Material: Linen and Linen blend with a cotton lining
Pattern: Vogue Pattern 1313
Over the Easter break I decided to whip up a few dresses to wear to work. I have so many patterns but thankfully landed on this nifty Vogue number. I’ve always loved the colour block type dresses so I pulled out my floral cotton sateen that I bought a while ago at Spotlight and pieced it together with some black cotton sateen. I also included a lightweight cotton lining.
