Description

i needed something quite simple to show of this fabric so i settled on this one. i added the belt from another dress in this issue just because i could lol the collar gave me a bit of bother as the fabric had a four way stretch and no matter how many times i did the collar i was’nt happy, i might remove it or change the angle of it later x

    would you say this pattern has a lot of ease around the mid-section? it just seams rather “sacky” in the waist; or i’m imagining things…

      Its fine really. I added The.belt to draw it in a bit. The upshot is that its flattering on the stomach area. I hope my dress dos.nt look like a sack as.the fabrics.fab lol. I.ll try and get a photo of me with it on x

    Love the fabric!! For your collar problem, maybe you can make a removable collar in a stable fabric. Anyways, this dress is very beautiful and I’m sure you are stunning in it

      Ah thank you pam. I really like the collar but I tried it without interfacing with interfacing and with just interfacing at the ends and it still drove me mad lol x
