this was another of the Lekala patterns. Made a stupid mistake though be not measuring the pattern properly first and the length was far to short for my taste so I added a yellow band. For speed I just did that as one strip, but in hindsight I wished I had made it seamed like the main part of the dress at the sides.
Had to do a fair bit of work on the collar with hand stitching to make it lie right.
I really love this one. Buttons on the back different from front as I didn’t have enough and nowhere to buy big ones here! First time doing pockets and belt loops.
All in all very pleased with it. http://www.lekala.co/catalog/dresses/4106#model
