    This polka dot Tiramisu is lovely Jenny and looks great on you. I have made two and I am still not 100% happy. But I am sure the next one will get better.

      Hi Marjorie, i reduced the skirt flare by a quarter and didn’t do the pockets on this one. Also, because I couldn’t be bothered with pattern matching, the skirt panels and back bodice were cut on the fold, feels more comfortable without those centre seams.

    This is lovely on you and you gave it such a vintage feel with the fabric. Lovely work x

      I think anything goes now fashion wise and i love this. The fact that we can sew is a great gift. I’m mad about fabric and love making my own clothes. The dress you made is modern with a vintage twist and just gorgeous on you xx
