London, United K...
Something for me…. finally! And just in time to catch the last few days of summer. This dress was made using New Look Pattern no 6750. Its a mix and match collection of pieces and was pretty easy to follow and put together. The material I used was a cotton voile or so I was told. I have to trust other people’s judgement because I am still very much learning! Anyhows the fabric, although lovely was very sheer so I lined the skirt with some pale blue fabric that was the same.
I think in hindsight I could have done with increasing the bodice size a bit and I would like to try a stronger colour as I’m not sure that pale grey does me justice! Also the cute puffy sleeves, are a little bit tight around my arm. I didnt think to check that measurement! But Im chuffed that I managed to fit an invisible zip and moreso that I completed a dress for myself. Its all good practice. On to the next…yay!
Thanks to my fiancé for taking the photos and for the lovely day we spent in Brighton!
