Dress with a great neck

Added Dec 17, 2013

by Ellen Hatteland

Nedre Vats, Norway






I thought this fabric was nice on both sides and therefore I deceided to try a combination. I have used the raw edges at the hem and the neck and I like the zipper at the neck – then you can leave it open or closed. I have used pattern from Diana 64/2011, and I think my niece looks very nice with dress on :)

Material Notes

Blends of wool/polyester.




Garment Type
Polyester, Wool

      Hello PinupGal, I bought this magazine in Spain, so it’s called Diana Couture, but in Germany it’s called Diana Moden. You can have a look at Google, and then you will se different editions :)

      I changed it ellen lol. Thats what happens when i have cocktails and shots lol. Putting my dresd on took me four attempts and typing everything in only for it to freeze was so frustrating i got some nice photos on the night out as well. I won’t risk losing what i have on though by trying again x
