Description

I know I’ve been saying this a lot about my makes lately, but I love this dress!

It’s one of those patterns that were love at first sight since it was released in April 2017, but other projects came in the way, summer ended, and generally life happened. Then this April as I was getting new fabrics for my store I fell in love with one of the new designs, fast forward a few months, the new fabrics arrive in my warehouse, I start taking photos for the website and fall even more in love with the olive green colorway!

    I’ve always loved that neckline but to actually create it? Mmm. I’d have to think long and hard about that!! You’re braver than me, though, and have done an amazing job…it looks fantastic!!

      Thank you so much! I am brave when it comes to sewing, if I like it, I try it ;) Creating it wasn’t too bad as such, just making those thin tubes that was a major pain in the…
