I created this dress from a Laura 6000 pattern. It is the most complicated thing I’ve ever sewn and I’m pleased with how it turned out. I think I only finished it because of all the rain. I sewed to keep happy. I widened the belt to hide where the seams don’t match up. It was a really good pattern to learn how to do lining and pockets. My favourite part is all the buttons which took me forever to pick out. I think I could shorten the straps but otherwise I really like it.
