Great British Sewing Bee Dress

by Karen Rigg

November
11

This was a great project for me, since I saw it on The Great British Sewing Bee earlier this year I have been itching to make it.

On the whole it was quite straightforward to make, including all the bodice panels, cut out back, side zip and inside lining.

The biggest challenge and also the biggest reward on the dress are the flowers, I loved creating these, I started following the pattern but gradually added more variation as I went along.

I have ultimately made the dress for a cruise I am going on next month for my husband's birthday, I think it will fit in perfectly on the formal night.
