So you’ve seen my sneaky peek of the lovely denim blue and pink polka dot voile. Now the unveiling of my dress!
So this is me! 🙂 Excuse my smexy bra. 😉 Actually, the dress wasn’t quite finished when this photo was taken (I still had to hem it and take in the sides but it doesn’t look much different now. It’s a Colette Patterns Hazel dress. I’m a total beginner (having only sewn the pin cushions and little bags) and I found the pattern so easy to follow and I pulled this together fairly quickly.
I cut the pattern and fabric and started the dress’ construction in one day. I think I got up to gathering the skirt the first day. I had a few issues getting the dress together (not to do with the pattern or instructions) as I seemed to keep managing to sew parts of the dress to parts of the dress that shouldn’t be attached. I was stoked when I realised I’d sewn part of the bust in the bodice to the skirt, not! Lots of unpicking during the making of this one but it all came together in the end! 🙂 In about a week.
