The pattern is yet another from 'Stylish dress book - Wear with freedom' and is also a button fronted loose style, which seems to be my favourite at the moment.

I messed up again with the pattern! I somehow managed to add hem allowance to the back, plus extra as per the instructions, but completely missed this on the front. The dress front ended up quite a way off the length that it should be (10cm!). How annoying! I have fixed this by adding in a bottom panel, but realise this looks pretty rubbish. I think I will make up a little frill in the same fabric to cover the seam, but also go round to back of the skirt. Anyway, here's the finished garment.

Some accessories that I thought would complete the look nicely...
|Eley Kishimoto tights|
|Tatty Devine necklace|
