Polka dot dress inspired by those fab fifties gowns and the massive skirts.

My first attempts at petal sleeves, sharp collar lines and a tulle under skirt.

    Like how you play with the polka dots and the solid. The style suits you very much

      Thank you so much!
      I’ll have to step up my game after browsing through all of your wonderful project! How do you keep the motivation going?!
      You’ve found and used some gorgeous fabrics!
      Really lovely ‘Peplum Mad’ project!

      awww thank you, i guess i just love sewing and people expect me to have something i made on me now on nights out. On shopping trips if i picked anything up my friends would go, you could make that?? and i have to admit i’m the same now lol. i was in belfast to.day shopping and i bought no clothes, i did buy chiffon though to make tops for my holiday x
