Inspire - Me Made Yellow Cotton Summer Dress

A few months back I posted about getting back into dress making starting with a summer frock pattern from a great book I purchased as an inspirational birthday treat. Well I finished this lemony dream about 4 weeks ago and finally have a few pictures to share! With hindsight next time I will cut the pattern a size smaller as I am not 100% happy with the bodice fit as its a bit loose but am very happy at the overall make. I took lots of time to finish the details well including painstakingly hand stitching the bodice lining down onto the skirt seam... one of my finest sewing moments to date.

Next up I am planning on making a wrap over circle skirt with matching sleeveless blouse... watch this space. Happy stitching!
