Melbourne, Austr...






This dress is February’s outfit for my 12 Outfits this year.

The fabric was an op shop/thrift store find, a four meter length for $4.00.
Pattern: Simplicity 9744 view 3, also from the op shop.

I lowered the neck line by about 3cm and shortened the length of the skirt to just above my knees. Instead of a tie belt, I made a belt and am pretty pleased for my first attempt! If I use this pattern again I will definitely use an invisible zip, I’m not overjoyed with the regular zip. I also wish I had spent a little more time getting the top stitching right, its a bit pulled around the neckline, should have used my walking foot.

Overall, I’m satisfied with the end result, it’s a comfortable and cute, so I’m happy!

Lightbulb necklace also made by me.

    Thanks so much! We’ve just ended the longest heat wave on record in Melbourne, so all your snow and blizzards seem very far away!

    I have the same feeling. It’s so fantastic that in burdastyle we can surf around the world and see different seasons. We, in North Europe, have snowy winter right now and your dress made me thinking about spring coming up. Lovely colors.
