My six-year-old daughter was eager to learn how to use a sewing machine after watching me. I started to teach her during the Easter holidays and by the end, she’d made this skirt for her Build-A-Bear teddy!

I sewed this gorgeous dress using a new plus size pattern that’s about to launch; it’s a Dolly Does Patterns Madame Strumpet one. You can choose which kind of collar and sleeves you want, so I opted for the ‘70s collar and trumpet sleeves design with red piping.
