This is the V-Neck version and I am happy with it.
I finished pressing it last night and wore it to work today. I trained in the beautiful and prestigious Art Deco hotel - The Grace - in the Sydney CBD today and I felt good enough in this Made By Me dress to wear to The Grace. (Cardi is RTW).
Excuse the grumpy face - I was tired.
Here is the dress sans cardi. I always wear something over my arms in public.
I don't think the flash went off in the above - had to lighten it considerably. Excuse ugly bruise on leg - I dropped the vacuum cleaner on myself ... that's what happens when you try to clean!
I love this fabric - it is a tribal print - quite thick knit (but not as thick as the last brown dress) from Sawyer Brooks. It was originally going to be a Pamela's Pattern's T-Shirt but I had enough for a dress and Voila - here it is. Sad thing is - the fabric looks like it is going to pill easily - damn!
Here is a close up of neck line:
Happy with results. Next one will have sleeves. Not much more to add.
This is my next item for the Sew Your Own Wardrobe for a Year Challenge
Please indulge me while I will leave you with a few gratuitous pictures of "The Grace". She is beautiful and I love going there.
