It is that time of the year, when I have an urge to get organised around our home. Now that the busy Christmas season is behind us, I am gradually going through each room and cleaning, organising, and finding items to be donated/thrown out. It feels really good to have everything in its place.
One of the projects I came across today was a dust cover that I made to keep Sarah’s First Holy Communion Dress free of dust while it is being stored. It was this dust cover which was later reworked to include a side zipper and a closed bottom to become the Monogrammed Clothing Cover in the book Fabric by Fabric One Yard Wonders.
Sarah’s dress has been stored this way for several years now (I should have ironed it again before the photos – oops!). I am planning on making some more dust covers to store some of her cute dancing costumes that she wore for dancing concerts when she was small – all the precious outfits I can’t bare to throw away. I will also make a few for some of my winter jackets that always seem to collect dust on the shoulders when they are hanging in the walk in robe.
If you would like to make your own dust covers to protect some of your out of season clothes or kids clothing/costumes, here are the instructions:
