This dress was made using Style pattern 3001. This was my first attempt at a shop bought pattern and I thought it was a fairly easy one to choose seing as it only has four pattern pieces. The instruction sheet was missing but I managed to put it together okay!

I really like the fact that the wrap neckline is quite high so I don’t have to wear a top underneath. I added ties where the dress wraps so that it doesn’t come open when I wear it! I just added a scarf as a belt to finish.

This picture was taken just after I had taken my heated rollers out as part of my ongoing quest to persuade my long hair to have some shape other that being poker straight!

      It is a vintage pattern from 1980 by ‘Style’. It is probably out of print now.
