Dress to wear to a Wedding

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I don't have a waist and I used Susan Khalje's extra width fabric seam allowance and adjusted the it at the waist. Very pleased with fit. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Lovely pattern, and don't ho hum about lining it as I did, it is extra work but really quite easy.

What you will need

  • Material on sale $4 a metre
  • a lovely linen and silk blend
  • thread
  • metal zipper
  • lining
  • Butterick 5952

Q&A with Pohutukawa

Pat Mitchell asked:
This looks very dressy (expensive). Great fabric/pattern combo.
Pohutukawa answered:
Hi, even when I was purchasing the fabric the shop assistant was amazed at the price $4 a metre? Lol
