Description

I started this dress on my birthday in the hope of having it finished to wear that evening. Needless to say I was a bit ambitious and ran out of time. One month later it was finished & I was really pleased with the result. It is graded as ‘easy’ and this was true to form. No reading of instructions for this girl I just went for it! The only problem I had was getting the sleeves to fit so I got rid of them altogether! All in all a perfect little summer dress… shame it’s nearly winter.

    Great job on the dress. Love to see it in plaid….my favorite color. It fits you perfectly. I will be buying this pattern as soon as they have it available in the store. Was all sold out.

    That neck line is lovely and it fits you really well – nice fabric and lovely finishing (as already mentioned!) xx

      Thanks! I like the neckline too but it should be a little more rounded, didn’t quite clip enough out of the seam. I find cutting into something I’ve already sewn is scary stuff!
