Finished Dress!

Evening all!

You may remember that a while ago I showed you photos of a dress I was in the process of making.
Well, I finished it before Christmas and wore it to my brother and sister's 21st birthday party :) Really pleased with how it turned out (less pleased with photos of myself, but you can't have everything!) and it fits like a dream. One of the perks of making your own clothes, I suppose!

Anyway. The pattern is a vintage 1950s, the fabric is a linen/cotton mix that's supposed to be for curtains. Brass buttons and I side-zip.

Took...more hours to make than I care to mention :)
(added the 2nd image because I HAD to show you how cool my shoes are! Even though you can't see them very well :()

Thank you so much, Carol :)
I have to say, as someone who lives in jeans and trainers that dress makes me feel like a real girl!
