Hiyas,

I maded another dress, for my birthday this time Grin  This is the 2nd in my attempts to try and make an Igigi style maxi dress (like THIS).  (Here is the first attempt if you're interested)

Unfortunately I had bought the fabric a while back and didn't have enough to make it full length but I think for this fabric pattern it was probably better shorter anyways.



After lots of fiddling around trying to work out how to do the wrap bust I ended up draping it on my dress form which was a lot quicker and more effective though since I don't technically know what I'm doing it still didn't come out entirely well, and the sash under the bust was a bit wibbledy wobbledy and too long, so I made some adjustments... and made it worse!!  Soooo in the end I made a nice long tie in the same colour as the sash to cover it up, which I liked better in the end anyways as I like the look of the ties hanging at the front Cheesy



Anyways, for a change I got it made a couple of days before the event I wanted to wear it at, yey, which was my birthday BBQ on Saturday, hosted by Mr Loop's parents Grin  And here's all we laaaaaydeys that actually did come dressed all fancy pants (as was on the invite Wink)



And yes I am yet again half-cut in these photos, it seems to be a running theme!!

Thanx for lookin  Cool

I may not have gone where I intended, but I have ended up where I needed to be.

I don't think that dress could have turned out any cuter. I'm a sucker for at sweetheart neckline, I think that's what that subtle V-neck going on is called--if not, I love it whatever it is. Red sash is perfect!

So beautiful I loved your first attempt but looks like you are getting the knack for this pattern. Keep up the great work.
