Sew It Yourself: Very Cherry

January 4, 2013

This adorable Heidi Dress by Pin Up Couture is …well, it’s adorable! But my goal for 2013 is to make all of my own clothes (especially dresses)!

Here’s how I’d recreate this one:

Pattern: Cambie Dress Pattern by Sewaholic – $17.98
Fabric: My Cherry in Black by Michael Miller’s Fruits and Veggies Collection – $8.98/yd (I’d need 2.5 yards)

Miscellaneous notions:
zipper – ~$2.00
red velvet ric rac trim – $0.68/yd

S.I.Y. Dress Total: Under $50.00
Original Dress: $98.00

That saves me around fifty dollars to spend on more fabric and patterns! I’ll take it 😉
