Bury, United Kin...
This is my first dress making project. The material used was originally a skirt I got from a friend. I then cut the fabric using coffee date dress pattern. Somehow I had to modify the pattern as I was having difficulty with the velvet that doesn’t stay put. I didn’t put in a zipper instead I broaden the neckline, sew stash from a jumper’s neck to combine bodice and skirt.
