Description

Had an idea for a maxi dress, then had to find a pattern that I could adapt; Found the Bambi pattern, and used that for the basis of my dress. Tried to link to the Bambi project, but there seems to be a glitch in the system!
Found this really easy to put together, and I love it!

    Thank you all for your lovely comments! My birthday was actually back in June, but we’ve had a very eventful time since then, and I’ve only just had the opportunity to post the project. Firstly, my lovely daughter gave birth to her own little girl( on her own, in the bathroom!). But before we had chance to go back to the UK to see her, my poor husband was attacked and seriously injured, and has only just recovered enough to return to some semblance of normality. So your positive comments have really boosted my morale! Thanks again. Lyn.
