East London, Sou...






This was my first project and I’m so happy how it turned out… Ok I lie…. my second attempt… my first was quite pathetic!! But I perservered and Voila! I know its not amazing, but i’m quite a noob at sewing and I really enjoyed it. Props to Miasu for the great pattern “contour bust and tute”! Thanks a bunch.

    Looks great! Did you do anything to alter the size of the pattern? My bust size doesn’t fit the pattern bit I’m a novice so I’m looking for someone who has made this dress in a bigger size.
