Made By Me #14

I want to start this post by saying how much I LOVE this fabric.  I am totally smitten with the designs from Lizzy House and think they work fabulously as dresses.  I'm not really a cat person (though I am more cat than dog) but I have gone crazy for this range having made three dresses from it so far.  Lizzy ran a catnap dress contest back in January and her journey into dressmaking via baking is something I can really relate to.  I only found out about the contest after it was all over and I had bought several of the prints unfortunately, I loved them so much I wanted to see what else I could get my hands on so did a bit of Googling.  You can see the fabulous entries here.

I wanted to make a green dress so I can add to my wardrobe rainbow and although it is a very dark green it is still green.  I love how this one ties in the other prints too, there are cats (obvs!), catnip, butterflies and little mice.  It's adorable!  I couldn't wait to get my hands on this fabric, I called up The Running Chicken to add next day delivery to my order as I just wanted to get cracking on it.   I really like this colour way and these butterflies but haven't been able to track them down in the UK yet, annoying.






Pattern: Emery by Christine Haynes
Shoes: M&S

This dress never fails to put a big smile on my face, I can't wait to share the others with you.

  7. That dress is lovely! I love the Emery, it is on my big list of dresses to sew, right after another Tilly and the Buttons Coco and The Mortmain dress. Plush Addict sock the butterfly fabric (http://www.plushaddict.co.uk/makower-catnap-butterflies.html), I have been stalking it for some time!

    2. Thank you! How did I miss that on Plush Addict?! I have banned myself from any more yellow fabric but this totally doesn't count right?! I have the Mortmain lined up as my next pattern but am getting some help on fitting it so not sure when I am making it. Do you share your makes anywhere?
