Hello Everyone!

I would like to share one of my favourite creations this year - a blue dress that I made for a party!
The top part is fitted with V-neckline and the bottom is made using a half-circle skirt pattern (I added a quick how-to on my blog:
 https://sewingjulie.com/2017/10/29/how-to-sew-half-circle-skirt-to-any-dress/).
The dress is made from stretchy fabrics, so I had to include extra constructional steps (such as interfacing, lining and stabiliser) to give it a more defined shape and make it look like a special occasion dress, rather than an everyday dress.
Here is the final result - what do you think?  Wink
