Ta Dah!

New dress!! Hooray!! 
I actually finished this on Thursday night, but didn't get a chance to photograph it. I'm super happy with how it turned out. I think it's nice enough to wear out at night, but also easy enough to wear during the day. I love the fabric sooo much and I have enough remaining to make Adele a dress, you know, so we can match :) I think I'm also going to make a belt to go with this, just incase I feel the need to add a little more shape.

The only modification I made to the pattern included adding 1 inch to each shoulder and facing seam. This made the arm holes a little larger and slightly dropped the neckline. I'm really happy that I did this as I think the dress does sit nicer at the front now.


  1. Awesome dress!! I will convince you to make something for me (maybe if I send mum home with the fabric)
    The photography is tough! Once you start blogging, you realize the bar is set pretty high for visuals. I'm glad my baby present was a DSLR but shame I've had no time to learn to use it!

  2. Wow, that is so lovely. Really original and gorgeous. Super flattering. I'm so happy for you that it turned out so well.

  3. Oh i loooove that dress! What pattern did you use?
