Description

I have some very important interviews coming up, and I wanted to make something special for them. I loved this pattern since I saw it and knew it would be perfect. I had to choose a boring colour, sadly, but I still love the modern look of the panels. I had to make some serious alterations to the pattern in order to make it fit, but it sewed together perfectly. The only part I had trouble with was the sleeves, as I found the instructions hard to follow. I will definitely make this dress again, but I might leave the sleeves off next time. Fingers crossed it works in the interview for me!

More info on getting the fit and fitting the sleeves on my blog Sleek Silhouette
