This is the finished dress from Gertie’s Sew Retro course on Craftsy. I must say that I would never have picked this pattern from Burdastyle to make for myself because it’s just not what I would have gravitated towards. I’m so glad I did the course though, because I ended up with a dress that flatters and that I absolutely adore. The course was good fun and I learned a whole tonne of dressmaking techniques that will help me way into the future. The red japanese cotton was just perfect and it fit like a dream.
Japanese cotton, Cotton sateen.
