Antrim, Co Antri...
i made this dress using two cowl neck patterns. the front was burda 8/2011 and the back was my mccalls 9464. my gold dress pattern. i added to the nightmare of doing this by adding sleeves from another pattern lol!! oh well i thought in for a penny in for a pound lol. i had this in mind once i got the fabric and seeing another green done in a similar way just encouraged me to press on. now my machines hate the sequins. i have an alfa standard which i love . its vintage and cam sew through up to 8 layers of fabric leather etc but the sequins floored it. i broke 16 needles all sizes before i gave up. i’ve sewed this 3/4 by hand and that took hours.i did’nt get to wear it as the event we where going to was cancelled so i choose the wrap to wear out instead. i’m hoping to find a way to machine this before i wear it out on the 18th as i don’t want a whoops moment lol.
hand sewn sequin slight stretch fabric and polysatin for the lining
