Now I know the colour of the dress is a little bit bridesmaid-ish, and I’m sure more than one of you is not so subtly coughing passe but, dammit, I love this colour.

This dress is a little bit vintage, a little bit sickly sweet and more than a little bit of my personality.

It was fun to sew and I like it.

    Such a beautiful dress! I love the skirt especially. The color goes so well with the pattern and I love how you have styled it

      It’s Anna Sui’s vogue pattern no V1178. It’s great fun to make so give it a go!

    Your dress is lovely! Just wondering: how did you get the hem to twirl like that? Is it with nylon thread?

      Thanks! With the chiffon fabric it tends to twirl naturally. I did a three thread rolled hem on my overlocker, 2 cotton threads, and 1 wooly Nylon. The edging that was cut on the cross grain tends to curl up the most.
