Nadja #1 Dress - Mod. #2

I spent so much time modifying the pattern and fitting to my size/shape I thought I should make at least one more dress with the pattern (and its sooo comfortable!)

Material Notes

It really wasn’t a table cloth!
I used some poly-cotton to make and match the bias binding and self-covered buttons.

    This is a very clever adaptation of the pattern. The yellow really works-glad to see yellow shoes too.

      Thank you, I initially was looking for big plastic buttons that I could sew on with an contrasting cross stitch but I couldn’t find the colour I really wanted so I went with the self-cover buttons and I am so glad I did.

    Love this one as well, the fabric with the contrasting yellow buttons and trim are lovely. I made a fiftieth dress and jacket and accented it with yellow so of course yours looks good lol. I have never tried doing my own bound buttons but I ordered some for a couple of dresses and can’t wait to give them a go now. Fab dress x

      Thank you for your kind words – I would definitely recommend giving the buttons a go they are really easy to do and look great :-)
