It's here finally! not quite finished, there is still overlocking to be done and tweaks on the bust, the skirt, darts and hem but hey!
(please ignore the state of this room but I was too exited to wait!)
I'm feeling Sophia Loren, mid sixties in this dress, less so Joan.
But still I am really pleased with it. But my pattern adjustments were miles too big so I think it could be worth just buying the pattern again so I can cut out the 20. It had to be taken in a lot so thats why its taken so long to post!
Its very wearable, very comfortable and I am so happy with the fabric (after overlocking)
Heres the pattern again
Lowering the neckline was a good plan definately,
heres the back!
