Was just thinking that I did, several things, before I had a sewing machine and wasn’t living at home so couldn’t use my mother’s.
One big thing I made was the dress I’d intended to make for my (register office) wedding - a long flowery, Laura-Ashley type thing I’d seen in a Brides magazine.
However once I’d nearly finished it, my mother said that although very pretty, it looked like an old fashioned nightie!! End of that idea, then.
She was right, in that it didn’t flatter my then very slim figure - I found an equally pretty but much more fitted one in a shop.
I did wear it a few years later when about 6 months pregnant at a formal do when dh and I were living in the Middle East though - with long sleeves etc. it was sufficiently covered up and someone else borrowed it for a similar do with the Sultan present, so it had some sort of moment of glory after all.
