I liked the shape so much of my last Sweetheart dress that I've made a second one....and just for you Miriam I've styled it with a pair of gumboots....because afterall if you were to come over to my place, that's how I would greet you at your car in a pair of gumboots....regardless of whether I'm wearing a dress or my old jeans and a t-shirt
This time I made a couple of changes. I did a heap of shirring in the back for shaping, though there is still a hand picked zip in there. And I drafted a half circle skirt, because I like the way a skirt on the bias always hangs nicely and skims my curves and I went down a size in the bodice!! woohoo
(though the material is a heavy stretch cotton to allow for that plus all that shirring )
I was really surprised by how the fabric worked so well with being cut and sewn back together on angle. It made a fabric that I wasn't that keen on, into something I've enjoyed wearing a number of times
Oh and did I mention that my whole family were watching and coaching in the background?
And this photo is especially for my brother
He loves his old Mercedes, and he was adamant that it would good look in the frame......I'm feeling a bit Westie now, all I need is my brothers dark shades and his rottwelier at my feet with a pair of strappy red heels to complete the look!! ( ooooh got a pair of those too )
Is anyone thinking Outrageous Fortune?
