This has been a very long, and drawn-out project… I started it in early 2011 to wear for a friends’ wedding; didn’t finish it in time; then found out I was pregnant so never bothered to finish it.
I recently found the dress while tidying up my sewing room and decided to complete it to wear for NYE 2012.
I love the print, but think the dress is a bit short. I will probably wear it with leggings, as it is a very fun little number. The neckline is quite wonky, and the zipper doesn’t line up perfectly, but it’s definitely wearable.
