Description

My daughter wanted a dress for her 21st . She couldn’t find want she wanted so I made her 2 dresses today so she could chose. She looks really lovely.
I am glad that I still have some of the flower jersey and a powder blue one.
No zip and a V shape back. Also much shorter than original skirt and sleeves

Based on #113 Burdastyle. 10/93

      Hi Mary. I am having similar problems!
      We are lucky that we can make them dresses. Normally she is very fussy but not finding what she wanted she turned to mama. She was soon pleased with the results! I had to take in the darts in the centre to give her a better fit. Another fabric at 50p a metre and an outcome similar the the Rheiss dress at £100 on the sale… Well theirs was silk jersey!

      Oh lucky you 50p a metre!! I would go crazy lol. My daughters the same!! She is very opinionated in what she likes lol. I told her though that if she sees an expensive dress she likes i will make her it!! Kelsey is very tall about 5.10 r 5’11 so i can get her fitted better than shops as well x

      Many thanks Ellen, you are so sweet! . She was upset at not finding a dress so she ended up with two. Lucky I had some fabrics at home. X
