Those of you who have read my earlier posts will know that this is the first item of clothing I have ever made. Personally I think it turned out OK. Some parts of the making process were a little challenging, such as the neckline. It was sitting too low so I improvised and made a binding out of the leftover fabric. I think it gives the dress a slight professional feel which I like.
I would love to hear your comments on the dress, do you like it?
I was very keen to have it finished for my birthday on Monday just gone. Thankfully I (just!) made it and I wore it to see The Phantom Of The Opera at the Palace Theatre. Now what else have I got coming up that I could wear it for?!
