Description

this is one of the new batch of patterns i got just before my holiday, its a fab pattern and the dress looks and feels great on. i ordered some red knitted jersey with a silver thread of ebay but it looked like xmas tinsel when it arrived lol , i used the inside of the fabric as it was nicer in my opinion and i made a little lined bolero as well for winter! i omitted the boning and the interfacing as i don’t like anything to rigid on me and i added little straps as i liked the of my shoulder look. i adore this pattern and i.m going to make a slinky one x

red knitted one way stretch jersey with a silver thread
red jersey for the lining

    Nice dress Mary and you look awesome in it. The added tiny straps was a great idea and the bolero makes the dress very versatile.

    Ooh, fun! I have this pattern as well and actually have all the pieces cut out in a lovely raspberry crepe-back satin. I just haven’t had the time or occasion to make it yet. sigh

    Fantastic job on the dress and bolero. Ebay can be a tricky one that’s right but the project is a winner :)

      thanks trudy, i took a risk with this but the fabric plus p@P was about £10 so i took a chance, i had the red for the lining. the inside was so much nicer and it glitters in the light xxx
