London, United K...






Made a peplum dress for myself using a self drafted pattern for my top bodice. Narrowed down a straight skirt to get a pencil skirt. used basic circle skirt technique for the peplum.
For the girls used same lace with ribbon belts.

    Love the fabric and the dress! And, your girls look so sweet! The photos bring me back to when my grandma would make my girl cousins and me all matching dresses.

    wow. wonderful. so elegant…

    just that little bit of bias at the edge really adds some extra umph too.

    and I love the kids dresses too. so sweet!

      Thanks, I agree about the bias tape, otherwise it will have looked a bit boring. ha ha

      Thanks lindal, I am loving the idea of self drafting. Just three pieces for the bodice top.
