London, United K...
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!
