I finished this dress for a wedding – just – (McCalls 6162 – view B). Quite a task for a beginner like me but was fortunate to have help with the fitting due to classes at the Sew Inn – held at Tessuti fabrics. Also thank god for YouTube – I managed my first invisible zip (mind you it was a 2am finish…)
Pretty happy with how it turned out and the fabric is just so comfortable….Didn’t get any good photos from the wedding, so more shots taken in the trusty back alley :-)
