I made this dress for a cancer charity night. We attended it earlier and had a lovely time. My family has been hit by cancer and i lost my best friend to it in june. I only used the top bodice section of this dress and drafted my own bottom section. I love this dress and think it’s one of the prettiest i have made, my mum kept saying get up and dance and show it of lol. ’ i could’nt find my strapless bra so i had to use a crap multiway one!! This is a fabulous pattern from burda and i hope you like my spin on it . I have gone from not liking long dresses to loving them x
