Yesterday evening started with me planning to cut out this dress, that was it just cut it out!
but as all the best plans do, it went terribly wrong. So, some body parts, a couple of pints of blood and a few volts of electricity later the dress was ALIVE!
Anyway some details:
The pattern is a Frankenstein version the Truffle dress from the Colette Sewing Handbook. I left off the skirt drape, and adjusted the skirt to make it slightly fuller. (in hindsight I think if I had just drafted my own skirt I would have looked better but I didn't want to spend forever testing and fitting it)
The fabric is quilting cotton from Peter Jones, it was in the sale for £5.30 a meter.
I'm going to wear it to my friends birthday party so I'll try and get some pictures wearing it.
