lace flora dress

Leicester, Unite...






as soon as I saw By Hand London’s new Flora pattern, I fell in love with it and knew I had to make it. I bought the green fabric from my local fabric shop and when I got home, I lay the lace I bought from Fabric Godmother. I thought it was a match made in heaven but my mum wasn’t so sure!… I have to say she did begrudgingly eat her words!! I love this pattern!! The dipped hem is fantastic and the dress was surprisingly easy to make! I just hope I win their competition now for a new serger… I am in desperate need of one!!
