potatotober - dressed in clouds

Remember my potato prints? Here is the little smock dress that I made using the material. I'm really happy with how it turned out - but disappointed too. You see, it actually turned out much better than I could ever have imagined it would but because my expectations had been so low I didn't take the time and care to ensure that it was finished off nicely on the inside. The side seams are, of course, french (because this is a skill that I am practising at the moment) but there are raw edges inside at the back. The material isn't fraying - I have put this little smock through the wash a few times now to road test the potato print - and you can't actually tell when Ms. M is wearing it... but I know.

The lesson learnt: have more faith in myself and that my little experimental projects might be a success after all.


  1. It is gorgeous Sally. Well done. The print and the dress.

  2. It's very sweet, even if you are aware of the flaws. No one else will be :-)

  3. It's lovely, well done! And definitely you should practice having more faith in yourself. I am constantly surprised when my projects 'work', I'm trying to retrain my thinking!
