I loved this material to work with, so easy to handle ! Got enough left over for a jacket, but haven’t decided on a pattern yet.

      Thank you so much !
      I too love exposed zippers, got a bit worried though when I turned around to show this one off and my friend asked: Is this an invitation to open the dress??

    This is gorgeous!! I love dog tooth check and.it works so well in this dress. What pattern did you.use? I.ve got something similiar to this in a deep purple shade. You.ve did a cracking job as always and the exposed red zips a fab touch x

      thank you Mary !!!
      Got a bit worried about my zip, cos when I turned around in the kitchen to show off for the picture, my friend said the bright red zip looks very tempting to be opened :-)) I immediately took his drink away !!!
      I have added a pic of the pattern, it is Butterick No. B5664. Not sure yet if I’ll make the jacket to go with it, what do you think ??

      The patterns fab!! I love jackets shrugs and boleros that match the dress. I.ve done it quite a few.times. Its a very 50.s thing to do but the matching.jacket would look fab. I.d even add red. Lning .your friend sounds like a right laugh . X
