Description

I bought this fabric from Ditto Fabrics in Brighton a couple of weeks ago. It was in the sale , even better!. I used the same pattern as I used in the summer but I added a small collar and changed the bust darts. ( completely in the wrong place on my first dress! ) this is fully lined and has invisible zip and two side pockets. Will wear it tonight.!

Cotton and lining fabric

    That’s beautifully sewn. I’ve not tried a Cynthia Rowley, but on seeing your great results, now feel I could have a go over the holidays. Looks great on you.

      Hello, many thanks for your comments. With this pattern,best to do a test bodice first as I found it a bit big when I first did it. I had to change the bust darts and make the arm holes smaller. A lovely pattern though. Happy sewing.
