My Flora Dress Sew along from By Hand London is complete 🙂
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 🙂
