Now I have the photos for this dress I realise I could do with the dress being a tad longer.. Lesson? Make the pattern before buying fabric? Make sure there is enough fabric before getting carried away making patterns? Probably both to be honest, but I seriously doubt either is going to happen anytime soon! I have a whole stack of fabric begging to be made up, so I will just have to made do! 😀
Oh, and it is Sewing for Pleasure at the N.E.C. at the end of March – if you are going, what are you going to buy? Do you have favourite stalls to hit first? I am looking forward to Rosenberg & son, Fabulous Fabric, Fabrics Galore, and of course, Gill Arnold. I need to replenish my very dwindling interfacing supply.

I love the soft neck treatment. It takes this dress to a whole new level.
Thanks. The jersey ruffles are way better than the chiffon I used originally!
I love this dress on you Anne. Such a gorgeous shape. And I like it that length too. You’ve got great legs… shame to hide them!
Well thank you!! I usually try to hide my ugly knees, but I guess that’s the job of the thick tights! 🙂
Hi ,my name is Ghislaine, I am french from Terrebonne wicht is a little french town in Québec a part of Canada.This is my first reply being the first time that I follow your blog.The dress and the color look perfect on you but if you really want it to be a little longer maybe if you use the jersey that surround the collar and made a three or four inches length at the buttom of the skirt ,it could look faboulus who knows.Let me know wath you think
