Looks a lil like this don't ya think?
Yep those are the school uniforms from home and away! Good job I opted against drafting my own collar huh!
But anyway back to the dress, can you see my pattern matching error at the waist? I can. Everytime I see it, it makes me sad, when I saw what had happened I nearly cried.
I am pretty pleased about the matching across the sleeve though. And my top stitching on the neckline.
The belt hides my pattern mistake!
That's a proper invisible zip right there! Treated myself to a new foot! And you wouldn't even know it was there if I had got the print lined up! I mean it's like 5mm out!
This dress had been a real dammed test, I love the pattern , I love the fabric, then I hated the fabric (note to self : pattern matching in two directions is hard work!) then I hated the zip! Then I hated the matching across the back!
But all in all I'm pleased , the hills aren't alive with the sound of music, but it is a pretty wearable dress, and I've learnt a lot from the experience!
