This patterns 11 years old but fabulous !!!!gorgeous lines on a dress don’t date. I love this dress pattern. Before i cut into my lovely black lace i decided to test run this pattern, its something i don’t normally do I usually just go for it and hope for the best lol. It works most times. Well the lace i used should’ve been red but it arrived a deep burgundy and i went yuk!!! the cream fabric is a heavy weight stretch cotton like fabric i bought loads of for a £1 a metre. I actually really like this dress now , I had the sleeves cut out for the dress but decided to go for the origonal pattern sleeveless version .. I made a a top out of scraps and added the sleeves though. x
