I Made a Dress!

My inner sewing goddess is jumping up and down, clapping her hands like a six year old! It’s a navvvvy dress with white polka dots and… I MADE IT!  The fit is horrible. It makes my shoulders look slopey and my boobs look saggy but I still LOVE it anyway. colette dahlia dress It’s a Colette Dahlia pattern. And here’s what I learnt:

1. I’m not in proportion

4. Kick pleats are a nightmare to hem, expletives were uttered and no, I won’t post a photo of my derrière

Would I make this dress again? Probably not. The fit is really baaad on me! Maybe it’s time for another peg bag?
