Another Party Dress - Vogue 140808:00
When I saw this pattern I though it would make a fab colour block dress. I bought the fabric ages ago intending to make it and wear it to a wedding yesterday. Typically life got crazy busy and the dress was made over a few days last week, another last minute rush job!
I ordered the fabric online (royal blue, cerise and purple ponte knits) and they are not the colours I was expecting (and the photos above don't show the colours well at all)... the royal blue is more like an electric blue. I went with the rather vibrant colours anyway and this is how it turned out.
I like it, feels a little costumey and I need to sort out the hem as it has sagged a little but I like it! It went together nicely, and is my first fully lined dress. It is lined with a stretch crepe fabric.

Now I need to sew the couple of Christmas orders I have, a twiddle cushion for my friends Mum who has dementia and Cinderella dress. Must do them soon....
