I have been making this dress since I cut it out last October, but it really hasn’t taken that long to make! I went to Tasmania for over a month, then exams, then room renovations etc etc.. Procrastinated as much as I love sewing! Plus, it’s way too hot in my room during summer to sew sometimes.
The dress went quite smoothly, it required a lot of basting and I broke 2 zippers which were sewn on (Oh.. fun!). I must say, I’m glad to finally publish it and get right into new inspiring projects!
I actually quite like this dress, and the material feels so nice!
My best friend, an aspiring photographer, was available to do these photos so I had fun being an amateur model for the day.
