Southend On Sea,...






I used Butterick B4443 dress pattern, style F bodice and a gathered skirt, knee length. Size 22 This is a toile dress. for the proper dress I need to adjust the bust point as on all patterns I find the bust point is always very high and one of the shoulder seams as I have a shoulder lower than the other. I really like the way the dress turned out and have already worn it out much to my daughters horror. I used a quite heavy cotton curtain for dress and light weight yellow cotton for the bodice lining. Its bright and makes me smile every time I wear it.

    Brilliant fabric. I love the chest Zebra! Although I can see how the dress, fabulous as it is, could embarrass your daughter (even if she’s wrong to be embarrassed by such an awesome dress!).

    LOVE!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE and you must wear it often to disgust your child because one day she will look back and say “gee, my mum was one rad lady”!

    HI…. all I can say is: WHAT A GREAT DRESS. And I know, if my mom would have a dress like this I would also be horrified, back then. But now, I would be soooooo proud on her, and showing off in front of all my friends with: “look, this is MY mom… who else have a mom like this!”… tell them that. In a few years, it will all looks different. I am sorry my mom never had dress like this :)
