Parisian chic reissued

I sewed this dress in 2009.
Back then this was the fourth thing I made after not sewing for 13 years.
I liked it a lot, but wore it only one single time.
And now ,2 years later, I see that it is full of mistakes.
The dress is not good enough for my present status of knowledge.
I can sew the sleeves much better now.
It would have been useless to correct the mistakes, it was easier to remake it.
In the end I decided to correct the dress but not to the original, I made some changes and gave it to my friend who celebrated the 8th of March with it. It’s a great celebrated bank holiday in Russia.

Material Notes





Winter, Fall

    When you look at the things you made a long time ago, you can see the mistakes you made then.. But you learn from it and become better every time..

    Beautiful dress. Well done :)
