Antrim, Co Antri...
This dress and bolero only came about because my friend asked me to make her a flower brooch for a wedding. she wanted brown and cream and picked this fabric from my stash. to be honest i forgot i had this lol but once i saw it again i thought i might as well do something with it. this new look pattern was on the top of my pattern pile as i made the cartoon dress from.it. I never normally do any dress variations from patterns as theres always just one i prefer. I decided to use a different bodice though and it turned out nice i think. i wore it to my nephews 21 st and nieces 13th joint birthday party yesterday and was so comfortable in it x
