Description

well i saw nicole scherzinger wear a fab dress in a mag so i decided to copy it. i used a lovely royal blue fabric that was a nightmare to sew as it was so thin and stripey leftover scraps from another project. i added straps as i’m always frightened the top will fall down even though i elasticiated it to death lol
i made the shrug from a pattern in the june 2006 russian burda, i bought it on ebay from russia cause i could.nt get it anywhere closer to home. its a fab burda though.

Material Notes

light weight royal blue jersey
striped jersey and white jersey for the lining of the dress and shrug.

Intermediate

    You look sexier than Nicole. I loved the way you used the stripes. Nice touch with the bolero.
