I will wear a dress!

I have started on my Spring/summer wardrobe so for a few days I am making some poplin dresses.
I love the vintage styles but I am a 12 to 14 and they are hard to find.  I also like to make the skirts less full and arrange the gathers where they flatter the most and cover the tummy ha ha  so making my own is ideal.

I also bought  a second hand roll neck cashmere jumper that I though I could upcycle into a pretty cardigan with lace pockets maybe to go with my dress, the colour is a good match and will go nice with my fabrics...what do you think?
Do you make your own clothes or up-cycle them.
I just need a tea party to go to when they are made xxx
Have a lovely week
