I made this dress for me to wear to a funeral. It was great fun to make and I really took my time and followed every single instruction to the letter – oh, except the zip, which I did the only way I know how! Oh, and the hem, which, I’m sorry, I’m not French seaming and hand sewing! I did, however, press every seam the right way and try it on frequently to check it was fitting!
I’m so proud of it! It’s a Project Runway design (2588), where you have the basic dress shape (either slim or flared skirt) and then can choose a yoke or neckline and ‘designer additions’ – I chose the bow of course! It also has pockets! So cute. Definitely going to be making another in a different style soon!
It was a beautiful flowery fabric for Isla’s funeral – nice and bright to match the meadow she is laid to rest in.
