and this fabric ($2 per metre from the clearance table at Darn Cheap Fabrics):
and you get this dress!
I made View C in size 12 straight from the packet with no alterations, other than swapping the sleeves for the ones in View B.
There’s still a bit of a wrinkle going on at the back, but I can’t usually see that! And it’s no worse than in ready to wear.
The twist overlay on the front sits beautifully, and the dress underneath has a high enough neckline that I didn’t need to wear a cami underneath it. I love it! Mr Thornberry has christened it “the Atlantis dress” because he reckons that the colours and pattern on the fabric are extremely underwater. And guess what – I even made matching undies!
I wore this outfit to the theatre on Saturday night and felt comfortable and fashionable. What a feeling!
