Description

I used a Burdastyle pattern 50’s Halter Dress edition 07/2012 style #133. I only had 1.5mtrs and not the required 2 mtrs so I altered the skirt to be just slightly narrower than a full circle. It worked just fine.
The fabric is a Liberty Lawn from Tessuti Fabrics called “Red Stefan”.

    Fabulous! I love the narrower skirt, too—shapely without overwhelming. How did you know what/where to take it in to make the slimming adjustment to the skirt?

    The dress is really great, I love this pattern and I have seen very few finished dresses. Yours is fantastic!

    Beautiful! This dress has been in my queue for ages now and I think you’ve finally given me the push to go for it! I hope you had a great time in Bali!

    It looks like the perfect dress for Balinese weather. And you look fantastic in it. Good job!

      Thankyou. I think it does look better. Not many girls can pull off a full circle.

      You must do it. It is actually a pretty quick sewing job.

    This dress is gorgeous Annie and I actually prefer the slimmer skirt that you have made. The Liberty is divine as is all Liberty. Your holiday Bali looked like it was a very special family holiday.

      Thanks Marjorie, the slimmer skirt suits me better thats for sure. I have tried a fuller skirt before and it makes me look huge in the hips. I still have that pear print Liberty to make up too!
