Roses and a Dress Final Result

Heya~

Remember in December I talked  here about making a dress for Christmas. Well, I did manage to make the dress but I didn’t get to wear it to church as planned.

The design  I sketched was a simple one but I went out to find a pattern anyway and I found this one below.

I liked the top of the turquoise dress in the middle better than the plain one I had in mind, so I did that but kept the circle skirt at the bottom.

The suggested size 14 for me was a bit big but I was able to take in an inch or two at the back by the zipper. The top yoke part of the bodice, however, was still a bit roomy.

Overall, I’m pleased with the result and will be trying the other variations in the future.

Thanks for reading.
