Sew Retro

by Karen Rigg

August

I created the bodice first, then made the skirt including pleats and darts (a variation I created that isn't on the pattern). I attached the collar to the neck edge and attached the lining, inserted the concealed zip, added the tab and buttons and hey presto, job done..

I like everything about this dress: the colour, style and and embellishment. It fits you very well and really suits you. A smart and classy dress.

Thank you, I was very excited about making it, I adore the achievement and satisfaction that comes from something that works so well, they don't always though ;)
