Description

Dress made using WOF #125 5/2008.
I made this for our anniversary night out, which never happened as I was ill, typical me!
Surprisingly I didn’t have to modify it at all, it fit perfectly like a dress shaped glove!
Hardest bit was the gathering on the left of the skirt, took me ages to figure out how it went together.
Anyhow v pleased with how it turned out and the smugness I felt at completing it soon vanished in a cloud of germs :( Still not been anywhere in it lol!

Material Notes

Cheap stretchy cotton and a bit of burgandy satin lining.

Difficulty

Intermediate
