I made this dress AGES ago, but am trying to post old stuff.



I found the fabric first - an embroidery at one end of a light cotton - and found a pattern to go with it.  The dress turned out all right, but the fabric really isn't heavy enough.  It's so light it doesn't drape all that well, but the richness of the color kind of hides some problems.  I'm not really sure how I should have handled it.

Here's the back, no idea why it's blurry:

Mmmm, lush. That colour is ace...loving the gathering in the front. I didn't realise there was some eyelet detailing on the bottom until I looked at the top photo...suits the dress nicely. Smiley You did a fab job. -x-
