Mini Boden knock off night

Two nights ago, I got together with a few of my sewing buddies for another evening of sewing fun.

This time, it was just the mums of little girls - as we were going to be spending the evening making our own versions of the latest Mini Boden dresses inspired by the Sincerest Form of Flattery series over at Craftiness Is Not Optional.

We all almost finished the dresses in an evening - just needed to put the elastic in - I'll try and post some picture of the finished dresses a bit later. For now, in the words of Blue Peter, here's one I made earlier as a dummy run:

The best bit? The fabric came from an elderly lady I know - it was a skirt of hers, and so the dress was free to make. A little girl's dress out of an old lady's skirt - or vintage floral fabric, depending on which way you look at it.
