Description

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.

Material Notes

very cheap polyester!

    This dress looks really lovely, I like the print, the pattern, how it looks on you, the picture. So stylish.Your daughter must be really proud, cause her almost 50-year old momma looks gorgeous ;-)!
