You should be able to start making this dress after breakfast, and walkaway to lunch with your friends.
About 3 hours………………………
I know I was a little rusty, not having made a full blown dress since making Rachie’s wedding dress, some 16 years ago.
But 3 hours?
It took me two days, plus an evening to sew lace around the hem.
What I did not realise when I started out hemming the skirt that it was 5 mtrs all the way round.
I ended up with a sore finger!
I made it to wear at our last show of our spring season, at Excel in London.
I was a little worried about wearing it, not used to showing my legs!!!
But I am so pleased I did, once I got over being looked at and whispered about - “Yes it is THE dress”
We had such wonderful comments about the dress, it certainly made our show.
I even got asked if I would sell it, what greater praise could you ask for.
Thank you to all your kind comments.
If you have the pattern, and I am sure many of you do……just go for it.
Make it and have fun.
Happy Easter everyone and do not forget to join in with our Easter Bunny Hop on our Inspiration blog.
