I joined in Cam's Lisette Continental Dress Sew-a-long. It took me less than two hours to get the dress to almost finished and then two weeks to hem the thing.
Finally today I found five minutes. No school fetes or school Council meetings this week!
I've resorted to the full length mirror propped up in the garden to get some photos.
I must teach the four year old to use the camera.
I'm going to make another for next Spring/Summer. Most others seemed to make their dresses in pretty colours, I had this (boring) brown patterned fabric already in the cupboard and thought with a cardigan and boots might be alright for the cooler weather.
So my verdict on the pattern.
It was easy to make.
No zips or buttons.
Length perfect on me.
Covers bra straps well.
It is a little sack like, but fine with a cardi.
Sizing is odd, I'm usually a 14 but measured up and made size 18.
I need to take it in.
The gathering at front makes me look even bigger up top.
Pattern from Spotlight.
Thanks Bec for posting it to me. Nice to have a personal shopper.
