It's taken a while but I have finally made the summer dress I have been wanting to make. You may recall the trial run - the bed sheet dress. I was so thankful that I had had that trial run because the dress went together like a dream and I felt so much more confident making it. So here it is.
I made it exactly the same as the bed sheet dress, leaving off the sleeves.
All the darts and pleats went well and the length is perfect.
I love this pattern. The dress is so flattering and pretty. I have more fabric I could use, so I think another of these dresses will definitely be made soon.
It's Eve's graduation shortly, so I'm so happy I have this lovely dress to wear.
A note on the photos - I never seem to amaze myself, that in my 54 years, there are still blindingly obvious things that I'm only just learning. I realised that I have a timer on my camera and so I don't have to wait for someone else to take photos of me! I was experimenting for the first time with these photos, the camera was perched on a box which was on the top step of a ladder. I think it worked reasonably well. Isn't life wonderful when you discover something new, even if it should have been obvious before.
Have a good weekend.
