I've made a Phoebe dress! This one is made in Essex Linen bought from the John Lewis haberdashery, finished with a combination of the overlocker and bias tape leftover from this project. I even got to use my invisible zipper foot for the first time, and I think I've come to the conclusion that these are easier the put in than other zip techniques - my waist seams even matched up first go.

I recently bought a stamp to make labels. I even embroidered the total time it to make the dress - which isn't totally clear, so that needs some work next time around.
