Antrim, Co Antri...
This dress only came about because i mislaid the magazine with the one i wanted to make in it lol.i was reading this one and loved the dress. the ones i have seen on here are all gorgeous so i thought why not!! i bought 5 metres of this fabric for about .£18 and it reminds me of xmas (red and green) .i love this dress and i will definatly do a solid colour to show the detail better. it fits like a dream and i got loads of compliments when i wore it and i have wore it twice now. a record for me as i have so many lol.A wiman stopped me and said “oh i love your dress!!” i said thank you i made it the previous night!! She laughed and i said no!! I really did make it!! She could’nt believe it which is a fabulous compliment. the top is made from the same pattern I just lengthened it and added a band. I have enough fabric left fir a oencil skirt so what a bargain x
