Description

Luckily it is cold outside in October…this dress was quite warm to wear at this function…
I did have to topstich all seams to make it look like leather…
It turned out nice, I am happy with the results.

      Ahh! thanks. I do like it quite a bit.
      Really glad I tried the pattern even if it needed modifications because of tall pattern.
      Happy sewing. xx

    Beautiful dress! I think the faux leather gives this dress a very urban look. The fit can’t be better :)

      Thank you Maria. :-)
      Because of the fabric it was rather difficult to make the dress “drape” well…
      The soft faux leather didn’t quite behave like I wanted it to.
      Happy sewing to you .xxx
