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!
It's time to enter for our grand prize, an EX100 machine PLUS a trip to Nashville!
