This dress was the overwhelming favourite from your supportive comments; with PRers who regularly chat on the message boards; the ladies at Highlands to the sea retreat and with Rhodes ASGers. I’ll be wearing this dress to the 2nd family wedding and the bias dress will be worn to the church for the 1st family wedding with a ink navy linen jacket that I made a while ago with Roberta Thompson. The jacket is further down this post:)
I’ve used Pitt Trading remnant fabrics (plural) to test out this dress and it’s worked out really nicely. You’ll see by the inside shot that I’ve used lots of lining remnants to make sure it fit properly.
Below is my pattern pose. Thanks to Sharon for getting my hem to a great length.
That’s an earring that I’ve clipped on the front belt. The earrings and bracelets were made by me and they are matching.
Below I took out the back skirt darts because it was disco/clubbing tight and that’s not where I’ll be wearing this outfit 🙂
The next version will be a summer version because I love the short sleeves and there are a couple of pieces in my stash that would work well in this style. And they won’t be work based but I’ll try and make them more retro in appearance.
