I Made A Green Dress
This is such an easy pattern! I must thank Flibb for wearing it so well (jump to her blog now - she's making another one in Liberty fabric and silk). There are several necklines to choose from, I had a hunk of green cotton fabric from my trip to Abakhan's in Liverpool and went for the crossover neckline in the pattern photo.
What does a girl do when she's a 12 up top and 14 below? I cut out the bigger size of course.
I needed to transmute into Dolly Parton for the thing to fit.
So I unpicked, re-cut and started again. I grafted the smaller size top onto the larger size bottom and da da!
My West Side Story pose.
The sun poured down on my lovely garden today as I stitched, happy in my work. This dress is soooo comfy. Let's make another one!
