This is my version of the Heidi dress which I made to wear to a wedding on Saturday. I used a slight stretch white cotton with a black floral pattern and lined it with a white satin backed crepe. Other people who’ve made this said it comes out large and I found the top to be really big for me. If I make this pattern again I’d cut the top a size smaller but the size 40 skirt was fine.
The instructions to line the bodice made absolutely no sense at all so I made it up as I went along which caused a few problems but I got there in the end.
You can read more about it and where I got the inspiration on my blog http://parakeetpie.wordpress.com/2010/05/19/heidi-goes-to-a-wedding/
The glass of champagne as an accessory looks really good wouldn’t you say? It tasted good that’s for sure!
