Description

This is the second dress I made successfully in my sewing course (the first one went to my sister). I had this fabric I bought at an Asian fabric shop in my area before I started the classes and wanted to make something with it but had no idea what.

I used the bodice of Vogue pattern Number 8472 and the skirt of Vogue 8615 (both pictures attached). It was a bit annoying at time with the lining because I chose a flowy fabric for the lining (still don’t know many fabric names), but it was worth it.

It sits very well and I’m in love with this dress. I finished it in early spring 2009 and my teacher didn’t give it back to me until late June 2009 as they had to grade it, but I was very impatient to wear it. When I finally got it, I wore it to work and everywhere I could get away with it. :-). I bought lots of different colour cardigans to match the flowers. Anyway, I won’t bore you any longer, but I hope you like it.

    This is really sweet and I love it! The colours are fantastic! I too must mention the cardi – I am secretly coveting it! (well – not so secretly now!)

      Thank you – the cardi is from last summer season ago, otherwise I would tell where to get it from. They were so cheap (£10=$14) that I got 4 of them. I love cardigans. Yes, I’m a weirdo :-) lol
