Telford, United ...
After the black convertable dress all worked out to plan, ish, I bought some much nicer fabric to make a dress to wear to a friends wedding. The black material was not stretchy enough really, and does not hold as tight as the red, lesson learnt! As with the black dress, this one can be tied in many different ways, I had it as shown, with shoulders for the day, then changed it to the halter neck with twist back for the eve but forgot to get a pic, will try to add one later!
I bought 5 meters of four way stretch silky jersey material, this was much better for this style of dress., due to cutting a full circle skirt, there was even enough left over to make a dress for my daughter too!
