Southend On Sea,...
I used Butterick B4443 dress pattern, style F bodice and a gathered skirt, knee length. Size 22 This is a toile dress. for the proper dress I need to adjust the bust point as on all patterns I find the bust point is always very high and one of the shoulder seams as I have a shoulder lower than the other. I really like the way the dress turned out and have already worn it out much to my daughters horror. I used a quite heavy cotton curtain for dress and light weight yellow cotton for the bodice lining. Its bright and makes me smile every time I wear it.
Hit the city streets in adventurous looks with utilitarian details like cargo pockets and belts.
Twists on feminine classics, like a bold patterned shift dress and pants with a racing stripe.
