      Thank you, Mary.

      I really like the fit of this dress and its very comfortable. Hardly any issues with this. I’m self taught and almost always learning on the job :0) so it was a nice challenge and I definitely will be sewing it again. I doubt I’ll ever use the puff sleeves as its a bit too full for the styles I like.

      It’s summer so I better get sewing, which is just my excuse for buying yet more fabric- like I haven’t got enough already! Lol
