I made this dress using Vogue pattern V8727. The full skirt is not my usual style so I used fabric that cost £1 per yard in case I didn’t like it! However I was very pleased with it and wore it to the photoshoot my daughter treated me to for my 50th birthday – which is next week.
very cheap polyester!
