Just the challenge I needed to get me cracking on with sewing! I made it in size 44 (a size I haven’t been for such a long time) and it actually fitted!! That was enough of a thrill as you can imagine!
So, photography is really bad as trying to do myself, but the dress makes me very happy. If I have time before the deadline I’ll see if someone else will volunteer to photograph me…
Anyway, made this for a bit of fun to play along with the challenge, I’m hoping I’ll have to take it in some more before summer arrives in the Southern Hemisphere, but I won’t be complaining if it’s too big for me come Christmas :>
