Royalty with XOXO

Love this fabric and the style. The XOXO means Hugs and Kisses. The dress is slightly flared and has front and back 1" tucks, wing collar and extended armholes. I modified the style by shorten the length at the lace placement line as it would be too tall for me.

The details are divine and I really hope you can see it from the pics. Ten(10) 1/2" buttons are at the front

It as a little time consuming to do so many tucks and to make some many button holes but it was well worth it. I love it and plan on making it again when I found a lovely gingham print.

Are you loving it as I am?? Thanks for looking

    The silhouette flatters your figure absolutely and the fabric is very nice and well-chosen: with such types of outfits there’s always a danger to get a home gown but yours is really a dress – you look beautiful and well-dressed for any occasion: either for work or a date or a stroll. All your works are so versatile but right now I think this one is the best:-)

    Great dress! It’s good you included the technical drawing, I wouldn’t have recognized it otherwise. You really made it your own.
