After cutting out this pattern well over a year ago, I have finally got round to finishing my Jenny Dress.
This year I have three weddings to go to so made this gorgeous dress for all of them.
I found this fab cotton, illustrated with all things found in Brighton (UK), in such a gorgeous minty pastely green tone with accents of pinks and blues and thought it would be great for this project.
I am a beginner, so found it difficult to choose a contrasting fabric for the waistband. I went for a solid blue which I liked, but as I’m quite petite it does look rather big, so needs a belt to break it up a bit.
I also used quite a thick interfacing for the waistband which is not neccessary at all, but you pros probably know that anyway!!
The cotton does crease very easily so will probably try to use something a little more wrinkle resistant in the future.
