Dressmaking Fail

This week I've been making a dress to wear to Ben's birthday bash on Friday night, but I failed. It's too small, and tight, and makes me look like a sausage.

I followed the 'instructions' in a book called 'Yeah! I Made It Myself', but it all went wrong because the book only shows a little hand-drawn picture with the measurements, so I had to make my own pattern and there was too much guess work involved. Lesson learned = use shop bought patterns.

This is the lovely, but thankfully cheap, Ikea material I wasted trying to make it:
