Description

I needed a dress for our works night out in belfast. I had this one cut out from last xmas but i had already made two sequin dresses so this got left unfinished until last week. I have made thos dress before and it really is a comfortable flattering dress. The fabrics hand sewn sequins on a mesh background so it’s fully lined including the sleeves. The girls thought i had bought it so i was delighted .We had such a fun night in benedicts hotel belfast. Gorgeous meal , loads of drinks great company and a sumptious room. X

    Sizzle! I am going to have to try sequin in my future. It’s so shiny & needs to be danced in.

      Thank you so much, you should really give the sequins a go, it is so worth it in the end. I do love sequins and i do break a Lot of needles but you get a nice dress at the end. Merry xmas to you and your family from a very cold and stormy ireland x

    It is very very beautiful, Mary! As always you look stunning. Besides, the fabric with sequins is not easy to work with but your dress impresses and represents both you and the pattern in the best way!

      Hi ellen and thank you , i broke loads of needles so a lot if it was done by hand. Because of the drape the lining was attached to each piece and stitched like one piece, some parts had four layers and the sequins where everywhere lol. Mum came up to see me before i left and she took the photos. I had a fabulous time but i’m so tired now lol x
