Description

This is my Roland Mouret Galaxy Dress. I am so pleased with this dress, it couldn’t have turn out better. I have always loved the Galaxy dress but could never afford to buy one, I still can’t believe I have managed to make it!!! It has taken me just over a day to make and there was lots of hand sewing involved but i got there, it was rather big when i made it so i took it in and i may have took it in a little too much, i will just have to not eat when i’m wearing it. I bought this pattern from the Vogue website when they had a sale a few weeks ago, it was only $5!!!! Pattern number V8280.

Material Notes

Navy pinstripe cotton

    This is REALLY beautiful, I’ll try to make it too, even if I’m not that skinny… I just would like to have an advice: should I use an elastic fabric, or it works also with other materials? Thaaanks a lot!!

    Stunning dress. I’m also making this dress (brought the pattern last year), and I’m seriously impressed you only took a weekend! I’m making a test version in calico and I’m finding that challenging.

    So i take my hat off to you. Great job ;0)

    WOW!!! Thankyou all so much for your lovely comments, i wore this dress today at work and i felt fab in it! I think everyone should make one!!!! i’m thinking of making another one but without the sleeves, so watch this space!! Jelly bean – I know i can’t believe it either, i have only been sewing since christmas and i am self taught, i can see the improvement every time i make something, some things it takes me a while to figure out, but i get there in the end.

    Looks great! I’ve loved this pattern since I saw it, but I’ve never been quite sure it would work with my bony cleavage, so I couldn’t justify buying it at about 12 euros ;) but it looks great on you and I can hardly believe you made it so quick.
