Description

This dress almost never happened as I made a huge mistake changing the neckline and made the v way too low by the time I realized that I’d sewn the side panels surged them and completed the neck facing. It was a lengthy process unpicking it all but I was so in love with the fabric I had to save it. This is a sewoverit pattern and I went a size down as I wanted a tighter fit on the top, i changed the neckline to a v, added cap sleeves and ties on the back, I love this cute flirty summer dress it is really nice to wear you just have to be careful of a gust of wind and having a Marilyn moment.
The instructions were really clear and they provided step by step pictures to help you sew it, I will definitely be making the original version for autumn.

    It’s so summery and nice! But I have to admit the first thing that came to mind is that malicious gust of wind :D

      Thanks Maria, I have to admit entering the metro station can be dangerous with the through wind :-)
