DIY Charles Anastase inspired ‘Amelie’ Dress
Inspired by Anna from Much Love‘s Frocktober effort, I decided I’d dedicate this post to one of my new favourite frocks. She invited me to take part in her ‘Friends For Frocktober‘ post, but because I hadn’t checked my emails in a few days I was a bit late on the boat. Anyway, I started making this dress a few months ago using a pattern I found in my mum’s stash of sewing supplies. Despite following the instructions, the end result was not as anticipated and I’ve only just finished tweaking the design, with the help of my mum who has all the super-duper dress fixing skills. I would now happily wear this dress every day for a whole month (laundry issues aside). Be sure to check out Anna’s efforts as she frocks up every day this October to help raise funds for Ovarian Cancer Research.
ETA: The pattern I used was Simplicity Pattern 7199 Misses’ Dress (circa 1990s).
