This is the second summer dress. I was so excited I finished it all in one day, I had to take pictures right there and then. I am really happy with the result – check out that zip (so much better than the last one. I ankered it with the machine, but hand-sewed the important side. I also hand-stitched the lining onto it, it looks quite neat)! The best part: I’ve just discovered that the dress goes perfectly with my wedding shoes.
I used the basic bodice pattern and altered the neck line, omitted the sleeves. I lined the top part. The top skirt tier is from Cate, shortened, the others are simply added panels. My old sewing machine doesn’t have any embroidery stitches, so I simply zigzagged the neck line and the armholes.
No, it isn’t perfect, but I love it. Not least because it makes me look slimmer than I really am hihi. Here it is: a maxi for our holidays that I can also wear to a restaurant in the evening.
