I made this dress from an amazing stretch cotton I found at Spotlight that kind of looks like grandma curtains. I really love the tie back so I made it in time for my trip to Italy and Greece. The pattern is AvantGarde S23354 which had no instructions, just the pattern pieces. I even managed an invisible zip and finished off everything without cutting corners! I’d love to make it again but I have too many dress patterns to try first. I feel this dress really shows that I’ve learn alot throughout my year doing sewing classes. I’ve definitely learnt alot of patience thats for sure!
