I chose to make the Faux Wrap style version which was actually quite tricky.  I felt like I pushed myself out of my comfort zone with this dress.  Although I have been sewing for a few years I would say this year it’s all started to ‘click’.  The dresses I have made this year actually fit me!  I am so happy and proud of myself … YAY! 🙂

I wore this dress out today to the local market to see if I could ‘bag’ myself some fabric bargains.  There a lady approached me and commented how lovely my dress was and asked where I bought it from.  She looked shocked when I mentioned that I had made it myself (Yes! get in there Lou you can make awesome dresses!! – sorry…reality check time).

I love the fullness in the skirt with this dress.  The wrap part on the top is a little gape’y for me but I just wear a camisole type vest thing under so no showage 😉

I will definitely make this dress again.  I think next time I will make the tank top version…watch this space folks! So here’s a few pics of my fab dress 🙂
