Well I can't say I finished the green 60's dress on my own but it is finished. I have to admit that this dress may just be the limit of my current sewing abilities, if it had not been for one fact I would have spent as long as it took to work it out BUT I didn't, I took it off to a seamstress to help finish it.
The fact is that while the pattern is not easy and I've never done anything like it before that didn't stop me from trying. What stopped me from spending forever on it was the fabric. I got this small amount of fabric on a trip to Sydney and totally love it. I can't just go and buy more and I have only about 2 meter of it, with this in mind I could only do this once. I am not disappointed that I took the dress to someone else, in fact I am really pleased, it's much better then looking at it unfinished for who know how long.
These shot's were all taken by Master Little 7 and the batteries failed before we finished, I hope to get some better ones next time I wear it.
Ooh! I picked these shoes up on my trip to Sydney as well. There GREEN and look great with this fabric. I couldn't plan it better. The lovely seamed stockings are from The Lindy Charm School for Girls and I get so many comments when I wear them.
Hope your having a lovey week end, Happy Sewing!
