London, United K...
I really liked the completed dresses for this pattern so attempted it in a stretch silver piece I had fallen in love with.
Sadly I only had a metre so I added in the black detailing which in hindsight I think makes it.
I would not suggest making it in stretch with a zip and lots of fitting as I ended up handstiching a lot and are still not 100% happy with the back.
As I am quite top heavy I altered the top to flatter rather than overtake with some shoulder tucks.
