Great Yarmouth, ...






so many wonderful projects. I finally got round to finishing this example, no. 117, a little bit tricky with the cross over section, but I took my time and it was worth the effort.

Material Notes

cotton with some stretch, zipper, interfacing




Spring, Summer
Garment Type
Classic, Evening Wear

    You look really lovely and elegant in this dress. The style fits your body perfectly. I can see you making more of this style.

    Oh wow!! I have been looking at this dress and now I want to make it. This is fabulous chula. It looks so chic and elegant on you and the two styles with the tan and black both look great. I love your tan shoes. So that’s your shoes and your handbag and your dress I would like please lol. Lovely photos as always. Xx

      thank you soooo much Mary ! I quite love the tan shoes with it too, but last friday we went out and I wore this dress with some high heels I found in my “shoe-wardrobe”: high heels in a cream with a salmon heel, they went fabulously with the dress ! might have to add a picture for you to see.
      As for the handbag, I discovered it in a shop where everything was £5,— and couldn’t resist. xxx

      I would go mad if I found a shop selling bags for. £5 lol. I found a seller on eBay whose shoes are £12.99. I bought a pair of green heels and they’re gorgeous. I ordered 3 more lol. Got them yesterday. Multi glitter, orange and turquoise. I want them all x

      yeah, know what you mean. It took me forever to decided which bag to buy, wanted them all, but in the end I decided on this one because I thought the colour would go with almost everything. Can’t wait to see a picture of your new shoes, a total weakness of mine, shoes, shoes shoes and more shoes :-)
