Added Jan 1, 2009
This was to be my Christmas dress but I ran out of time making some extra presents.
This is the first dress I’ve made that I am really happy with, although (like the previous ones) it is still too big in the bodice and midriff despite making the size smaller than my smallest measurement. Next time I will drop yet another size. This time I added a sash with the leftover fabric to cinch it in. I love that the neckline is flattering without gaping or exposing any cleavage, which is often a problem for me in rtw garments.
Shell 100% cotton (with some kind of metallic coating)
Lining 100% cotton.
Because it’s hot here in NQ!
