Description

Normally I don’t like puff sleeves, but I liked the style of the skirt very much and decided that I could make the dress without any sleeves, but then I figured out that I would try to sew the puff sleeves as well since the fabric I have used is falling very nicely. So I was happy with the sleeves at the end :-) Instead of button holes I just decorated the sleeves with a nice button. The fabric is a bit shiny and it reminds me about the finish of sportstretch, but this fabric has very little stretch, but it’s comfortable wearing on a summerday and I was wearing it in my girlfriends party :)

    Looks very nice. I’m glad to see the pattern made. I like it too but I had some doubts: it seemed to be overloaded with draping: draping on the bodice and on the sleeves were too much for me. But I like your version, I think the choice of fabric is very winsome and it changed the idea. So your dress is very nice, womanish and elegant. (Have I said about how hot you look in red?:-))

      Oh, dear friend! You are always so kind with your complements! :) anyway, I think the dress would be very nice without sleeves and then it will be more summerly :-)

    Great result. Sometimes it’s really important to make something that you’re not all that keen on. The results can be inspiring. Great red dress! Loving it, as ever
