Last year at the Knitting and Stitching Show in Harrogate my lovely Mum bought me some fabric for taking her. It was definitely for the Summer…and here it is made up!

I used a plain shift pattern which I have used soooooooo many times. I have decided I am a really boring sew! New Look 6145.ImageImage


How is the model pose coming along!?! ha! I got the gorgeous necklace from my lovely sister for Christmas from Fenwicks in York. It goes perfectly with this dress.

Fabric: 1.5metres

Pattern: New Look 6145

Notions: 9inch side zip.

I was really careful with the neck when it was on the mannequin to make sure it was a good fit, however, I think it may be cut a little too high and it may need a slight trim! I also seem to be cutting dresses very short! It could do with at least another inch on it really!

It has rained heavily in the UK since this dress was completed!
