So far we have invites to 5 weddings this year! Because of the 2014 RTW Fast I won’t be able to buy new out fits (loud sigh of relief from my hubby!) and I don’t think I’d be able to produce completely new outfits for each occasion. Luckily there are all different groups of family and friends so 1 or 2 new outfits should be ok for all the weddings.
I’m a big fan of hats at weddings, but so far have not given wearing a hat a thought. All my time had been spent searching for THE perfect dress pattern.
And here it is….
So far I’ve made a muslin of the bodice in a gorgeous stretch cotton sateen. I only had 1/2 metre, so wish I had enough to made it all! From the muslin I’ve worked out I need to lengthen the bodice by an inch, but other than that it should be ok. (This is my first proper muslin!!)
I’ve found quite a few reviews and completed dresses on the web, here’s one of my favourites from Cozy Cottons blog:
Here’s my fabric which I purchased today on eBay. It’s a John Kaldor fabric, and I am loving orange this year, so think this will do nicely!
I first found it on a well known online store for £8.99 per metre, but managed to find it on eBay to £2.99 per metre!
A fellow blogger, Cheryl, over at Redknits is also making this dress in time got her birthday next week. I can’t wait to see hers finished!
What did we do before pattern reviews and being able to see other people’s finished garments before we finally chose our patterns!!??
