Nose dive #2… This dress is for me and I will definitey wear it. I am very happy with the fit and how it turned out. I nearly didn’t make it as it was a last minute rush.
I call this my Progressive Date Dress: first date all buttons done up. Second date maybe a little “peek a boob” and third date a bit (or lot) of leg and the open back. The opening flaps are covered with the embroidered organza, fully lined with voile, bias binding on the sleeves and delightful little silver buttons. it was very fiddly making this but I am so happy with how it fits and I have a date lined up already … with my Mum.
Embroidered organza and zin linen from Tessuti
