I made this dress for a Valentines piano concert in the city. It was simple and fun to design but a nightmare to sew – the main fabric, a polyester crepe, frayed easily and was difficult to iron. I was zig zagging seams up until the last minute (except for taking these pictures!) I loved wearing it though, it was comfortable and slinky and the colour made me feel happy.
