Description

The slowest summer dress ever.

I started this last spring, failed to finish it before we had good weather, then gave up on it when it rained most of July and August and summer dresses seemed a little bit pointless.

I got it out of the craft cupboard again this year and decided the pattern for the top I’d picked wasn’t really flattering (the pattern is great, it’s like five dresses in one).

So I took the top piece off and replaced it with a different shape top, taking into account that the top half is too big for me and needs altering down the sides.

This, incidently, is one of the things I love about making my own clothes, I can fit them to my shape rather than having to work round baggy top half versus to tight accross the hips.

Finished dress has already had some wear this summer and I’m hoping for a bit more sunshine so I can show it off some more.
