Description

This dress is made from Lycra which i bought in London. The lace at the back is vintage, i found it in my granny’s sewing box. I sold it in my little shop in Dublin for €120, the girl was thrilled! You need the worlds flattest tum and roundest bum for the dress, which she had! She’s wearing it to a wedding in America.

    Give me a moment while I pick up my jaw from the floor… Right, great job girl, she must have been very happy. Would you care to tell me where in Dublin you bought the fabric? Dublin is my second home but I have only found 1 fabric store so far. Thanks!

      Oh cool, I didn’t know them. I’ve been to murphysheehy a couple of times and bought some nice knits, but the choice is somewhat limited.
      I am totes going to check out TWI :)
      Thanks sweetie!

    Smokin’ hot. You’d need to make sure you didn’t have an ounce of cellulite as well.

      The back pattern is so easy- its basically two panels side by side, ruched and pleated top and bottom. I think i cut 2 squares actually, or maybe a little wider than the height…does that make sense to you? x
