I saw the inspiration picture for this dress (it was originally an apron) ages ago and bought the fabric after a bit of looking round for the exact right herringbone pattern.
I finally found the time to make and finish the dress, very proud of the result! While I looked at the pattern and used it sometimes, I found it a bit confusing for the instructions and so I made up my own method as I went along.
The dress should be perfect for smart occasions or any interviews that I could hopefully be having in the next year!
