Aw, thanks guys Cheesy

The stockings are from sockdreams.com and my hair was, well that orange coiffure was supposed to be scarlet red but didn't turn out quite right - it turned out better haha!

I would really encourage anyone who has the slightest inclination to try the TV patterns. The skirts are less complicated than any tailored dress you ever made. It's a lot of fabric and a lot of steps to be sure, but nothing weird. This jacket didn't have a regular collar, so the most complicated thing was the buttonholes.

love this dress - though I have to admit that the look on the cat seems to be "omg the drapes ate my human!" Wink
