Last night me and a couple of friends went to see Stars live! For my friends it was their first time at a gig and for me it was my first time seeing Stars live, so all in all it was an amaaaazing experience! Amy and Torquil have the best on-stage chemistry and connection. And thus for this grand occasion I made this dress to wear that night. I added tights and a black cardi cos it was pretty cold!

It's made from this pink cotton with sunflower/butterfly prints that I got for $4.99 p/metre at Lincraft. I really like the idea of peephole shapes and because I love loveheart detailing on clothes, I made an open heart at the back of the bodice, which has bias binding and interfacing around the edge. I probably should have bought a matching colour zip (its actually baby blue) or a black one, and i think it would have been better if the skirt was a bit higher up on the waist but apart from that I'm really pleased with how it turned out. It kept me cool during the show since we were about a metre from the stage and everyone was super packed up against each other, but in hindsight backless dress + other sweaty concertgoers = an awkward time for all. lol Tongue




ETA:

I had a retry and altered the pattern a little, making the skirt fuller with more fabric and adding (princess?) seams to the back and front and using real bias binding that curves unlike my homemade bias tape that wasn't cut properly  Grin this time it's in a more Spring-y floral print that Antipodium used in their latest collection

and obligatory lame action shot!
