Melbourne, Austr...






made this as the pattern. is a bit shorter than i expected and a bit low in front but do like it and may make again but a bit longer. i also topstitched instead of using piping and made the belt half width as only a shortie.

Material Notes

cotton gaberdine will be good for the upcoming melbourne winter

    That’s an awesome and very playful version of Paola! I can’t wait to see if they scale the pattern to my size!

    Good to finally see a Paola by a member. I like the colour you chose. It did come out shorter than I thought it would be but it looks great on you.

    Great JOB!! Good effort. Yea I dont wear anything that short, but if my dress turns out that short I wear some tights or coloured stockings. Your more covered that way. Your lips match the colour nicely. Yea it would look great as a coat!

    this is gorgeous! the color, the length and how low cut…i know how you feel about wearing low cut dresses. sometimes i just wear a sexy cami under to cover up a little bit but still have some sass to it! great job. it looks fabulous on you!
