London, United K...
I didn’t really know what to wear to my friend’s wedding, so I thought I would have a go making my own dress. I chose a BWOF pattern kimono dress from the March 2010 edition (link http://www.burdastyle.com/patterns/burda-style-magazine-032010-kimono-dress), as I thought that it looked relatively simple.
I think that overall the dress turned out quite well, though I think that the seam under the bust is perhaps a little high. Also, matching the fabric lines at the seams was a bit of a headache, as the fabric has a little give in it (something I hadn’t realised when I bought it).
I have to say though, I felt quite proud of myself wearing one of my first self-made items of clothing. And no-one guessed it was my own handiwork, so it couldn’t have looked too bad!
P.S. Apologies for the rather crude/amateurish photos!
Synthetic satin, at £1.50/m! Slightly stretchy so nice to wear, not so nice for a novice to cut!
