Description

I looked up the pattern from this dress and fell in love with it. It’s probably one of my ugliest projects so far and I’m lucky you can’t take a closer look ;O) !
The fabric is a very slippery rayon krepp which was very hard to sew with. However, the end result is super comfortable and I love it, even though my husband first refused to make pictures. He thinks it is super ugly! Who cares, right!
NYC is beautiful now! Packed though, we spent a nice day in the city visiting Santa in Macy’s and having a fun time on the ice rink of Bryantpark!

    I like the romantic style of this dress and I like the way you wear it as well with the boots, tha hat and the scarf! Ugly is not the right word for this of course!

    Slippery fabrics are tricky but I will join the chore and say that this is one beautiful dress and that it looks great on you!, I like how you wear it with the hat, bag and boots, that’s my style too!!!

    Floralgirl likes florals and course likes this very much! No no no not ugly. Reminds me in the 70s my mum had a gorgeous diagonal striped dress in sea colours. My dad hated it and placed it in a shopping bag and tried to discreetly give it to my nana. Didn’t work though-nana was loud. I would love to skate in NY!!

      Glad your dad could not get rid of the dress, ;O)
      They are just too great to wear! It was so much fun to be in the middle of the crowd, skating!

      hey and another thing after all these years i’ve finally learnt that slippery and sheer fabrics are easy to cut if you place a layer of tissue paper under the fabric.

      That’s a good idea about the tissue paper for slippery fabric! I will keep that in mind next time! Thanks!

      Thanks! I’m glad you would! Sometimes he actually does make me unsure of why he would say that, but not with this one! I love the dress! ;O)
