Its was one week to my birthday and I realized I didn't have anything to wear!!!
well I mean, nothing new. lol. ok, I then decided to make something, simple, quick but of course nice!!!
I used butterick 5463, the long sleeve orange version. this I made longer to turn it into a dress.
I must say it was simple quick (under 2hrs for sewing)
|Don't you just love the lace detail.|
In case you think I did the lace inserts, no. The lace detail was part of the fabric border print.
One thing that actually took time was cuting out the fabric. Although it was just two pieces, one front one back, then the sleeves and facings for the neck. I adjusted the pattern neck, (original neck was too wide for me) making sure the front and back lace part lined up took some time.
|My idea of 'simple but nice'|
Overall I am happy with my 'easy' birthday dress. Got a lot of compliments too.
Thanks for visiting.
Come back soon.
