New Christmas Dress

I am really pleased with the way this dress has turned out. I am just getting back into sewing after many years "time out" so it is quite a relief when a pattern turns out. The pattern is Simplicity 3835. I made a size 10, the mini dress and I didn't have to make one single adjustment to the pattern. I am really pleased with the fit and I love the 60s feel of the dress. The fabric is a mystery satin print.

The photo above was taken just before we went out for a night out in Edinburgh where we went for a great weekend. This was taken by the waiter in Browns where we had a fantastic meal. The devilishly handsome chap with me is Craig, my boyfriend.

Nice to see that you are blogging again! Dress looks good and I'm glad you and Craig had a good xmas. Have a fab new year and I'll see you soon.

What a cute dress! The illustration on the pattern envelope does not do it justice. It looks much better on a real woman.
