What I did make, was special though. It was another Vogue 8804 for my Aunt. Now my Aunt is no ordinary aunt. Firstly, she's my great aunt, my gran on my mum's side sister, and is now in her 80s. And secondly, she looked after me when I was little instead of me being sent to day care. So I'm very close to her. But I always have the same problem with her when any special occasion come around. She's the type of person who when they see something they like, regardless if it's expensive or cheap, they just go a head and buy it, meaning that she's got pretty much everything! And I'd never made anything for her really, mostly because I was worried it wouldn't be perfect or that she wouldn't like it.
Pattern: Claire Shaeffer Custom Couture Collection - Vogue 8804
Size Cut: Straight 20
Fabric: 1.3m remnant piece of Polyester/Sequin Tweed from Mandors (original cost £19.99/m)
Notions: 5 black faceted buttons from Mandors @ 30p each, snap fastners
Alterations: None, made as intended. However instead of making button holes in the loose weave tweed, I put snaps in as the fastening and buttons on the outer to make it look as those they were in use.
Notes: As this was a gift, I don't have much to add here. This section will likely be for me to detail things I've realised through the construction process or wearing
Wearability: /10 again, as this wasn't for me I'll leave it out just now, but normally I'll be rating each garment!
