|Nic, who took these pics said that I had to have a 'prop', hence the wine. Not that I took much persuading...|
Anyway, I thought I'd better get in quick before the warm weather is completely over in Melbourne and looking at pictures of bare legs is just plain wrong. Although having said that, at Easter we are off for a couple of weeks on a trip up the East coast and driving from Sydney to Brisbane so maybe there's still a chance to wear it.
|Side view, not the most flattering but good for eating big dinners|
|Wrinkly (my elbows and the neckline!)|
This pattern definitely needs fabric with good drape and viscose feels lovely to wear so even though this dress is a bit of a bewb tent, and not my best sewing it was a godsend in the hot weather.
I used a small piece of hat elastic for the thread loop and an opshop button and finished the arm bindings by hand. And no, I'm not sure why I have hat elastic in my stash either.
