Description

My daughter needed a new dress for her boyfriends 21st to.day.They where of to a lovely restaurant in belfast, well i got the picture of a dress she liked sent a while back so she asked for that, (lots of please mums went on lol)then i let her pick the fabric out of my stash, kelsey choose a beautiful coral jersey with a bit if lycra. I only had 2 metres so it was lined in a leftover piece of red fabric. I used this burda pattern as a base but i altered it quite a lot Instead of shoulder gathers front and back i pleated the front and left the back plain. The full length slit took a lot of work as well. I started sewing it to.day and it took 7 1/2 hours but i loved the finished dress and so did my daughter. x

      Hey Mary, I can’t see any inappropriate post and so you are definitely excused :) Glad your daughter is so pleased with it. I just made my first dress for a grown up friend (I’ve made kids things but always avoided making things for others generally) and she loves hers too – it’s a lovely feeling isn’t it? :) x

      i actually got all weepy when my daughter texed to say the dress was amazing and thanks. she came to.mine alomg with my grandaughter at 12 and she left at 3.30 with the dress. i’m just pleased she liked it. its daunting making things for other people is’nt it x

      It’s really daunting! So many people say I should make and sell but the idea freaks me out – I’m such a perfectionist and I’d hate something to go wrong! haha! I’ve just realised what you meant re the inappropriate post, haha! I’m sure I won’t be banned :) x

      Don’t worry debbie hitting that inappropriate icon happens to a lot of us on here. My friends will say to me i should make for people as well but i would get no enjoyment out of that. plus i don’t fancy the added pressure. I’m a soft touch normally and i’ve made dresses for women i don’t really know and it never ended well, either i had to hound them for the fabric cost or they changed their mind on length r neckline after i’d cut the thing out. I just say no now as i just sew for myself and family. x

    That is all what such a beauty needs: nice colour that is absolutely hers, simple and elegant pattern that makes her so sexy and, the most important!, the mum who, like a fairy can create any outfit for a ball:)

    There’s a bit of a mistake with the dates on.this pattern in case anyone wants to.use it?? it’s burda 01/2012 but it’s under burda 01/2011 on here for some reason?? The zip side version looks interesting as well x
