Well this lovely dress is from a pattern that i got from a vintage shop but unfortunately what was on the envelope was not what was inside and what was inside was not complete with bits missing and defaced so as is my style i have mixed and matched and made it up as i went along,fun,fun,fun all the way. But as you can see came out all right in the end. Lotta skirt to this dress with 5.5 meters round the skirt hem
I started to match the print but it i did not like so i went for the random which i prefer.

    I love the silhouette of this dress….it flatters just about any figure. Is there a pattern number? I’d love to find one to add to my collection!

    I love that fabric! I don’t know if you would have been able to match the prints with all the gathering and the princess seams. It looks great!

      Yea i managed in the seams but it looked to contrived for my tastes,i would not have tried on the waist sleeves. And thank you
