London, United K...
I found this dress a bit challenging, and seeing how many others have done it made me wonder if it was just me! I can’t tell you how many times I had to unpick certain bits. After trying the completed dress on, I can see that I need to add a belt or ribbon just to make the top a little bit more fitted (either that or unpick the bodice which may result in me crying).
I found the instructions on the all in one interfacing a bit tricky and really didn’t understand point 5 so I had to figure it out myself which did result in the straps being a bit bulky…but not bad for something I guessed!
I tried to go for colours so that I could combine it as a work and afterwork dress, however, i’m not sure if it just looks a bit too ‘worky’.
