Yup, I've been back at my machine and sewing up a storm! Mostly summer bits and pieces for my summer holiday (t-minus 3 weeks XD) including this dress. We're going a cruise again this year and I felt I needed another formal night dress when this lace arrived in the shop. It was the perfect fabric, I couldn't have planned things any better! Then I realised what this week's project sewn theme was Florals and I knew I had to take part...I'm not normally one for jumping on bandwagons, but in this time I couldn't refuse! Also have you seen what all the contestants have been making? I totally love project sewn, such an amazing idea!
Pattern: Just the bodice of V8815
Size Cut: 20, taken in a little at the side seams
Fabric: Coral lace, duchess satin, tulle and lining from Mandors
Notions: Invisible zip
Alterations: only those above!
Notes: Tricky to sew through all layers but the walking foot made all the different. Could add more tulle if I felt it needed it!
Wearability: 6/10 really only for dressing up!
