Made by Yours Truely

HI :)

I am so glad to be finally showing you the dress I made!!!
I have made items in the past but but in the last year I had lost my momentum with it all so I decided to do a dress making course to fire me up again and it sure did.

I wore it out with Mr Rob the other day, he is really getting into his photography at the moment which means he is taking my pictures LOADS sometimes when I don't want him to; but he did take some cool pictures.

In the class we were taught how to draft a pattern based on our own measurements and we made alternations to it to make the style we wanted.

I am a little heaver on the hips so I wanted a bit of a flare, and I am obsessed with pockets so I incorporated them in to the design.

I picked the fabric because it reminded me of a 70's print and also purple is my favorite colour. I love how well purple and mustard go together, I matched it with my favorite boots and belt and I quite like the outfit.

I did wear it once before with turquoise tights but I think the purple look better.

I have started making two other dresses one from the same patteren as this and another using a different purchased pattern.
I just wondered if my readers would prefer a step by set account of the dresses I make or just the finished product.

I am also working on a "How To" of my hairstyle as promised.

I am off to do my 5k race (or rather walk, I hate running) for life this morning. Wish me luck!!!
If you'd like to sponsor me my page is HRHENS, Pictures will follow I am sure :)

Have a great day.
Ciao for now
