    it looks gorgeous. i made this one about 20 months ago in a blue snakeskin fabric. i wore it but thought it added to much bulk around my mid section so its my to.do pile to sort. i’d prefer mine with less swag round my middle and i’d shorten the front ties. i’d love to see yours on x

      Thanks Mary. Alright, I’ll post photo of me in it soon. I didn’t mind the mid section. I liked the way it covers my pouch. I agree, the ties are a bit much.

      i don"t think i got mine quite right though lol. mine would’ve fitted a 9 month pregnant lady at the front as there was so much fabric. me and vogue have a love hate relationship, i love them but!! you get the jist. i have such problems with their patterns. I made this nearly two years ago though and i like to think my sewing skills have improved since then.i’ve sewed for over thirty years but mainly curtains and the odd dress.the fabric i used is lovely though so i think i’ll take it out of the yuk pile lol and fix it x

      Sometimes time will give you a fresh perspective. Take a kook at it again. I want to see it when you’re done. ;)

      Thanks. The fabric gave it some punch. I think I’ll make it again in a solid next time.
