Meet my new Laurel dress. We're not exactly best friends but we'll get along just fine. But we'll never be besties.
This fabric was originally purchased for a Sencha blouse but I kept thinking about a dress. When the Laurel pattern was released I thought it would be a perfect match. Busy print with a simple style. As soon as I started sewing, I knew it wasn't going to be perfect. The fabric is too fluid for this style. It's not that bad and I still like the dress as a whole. I chose to line the dress rather than underline.
Pattern: Colette Patterns Laurel Dress, size 14
Fabric: Silk Geometric Print from The Fabric Store, red goldliner lining from Clegs
Alterations: 4cm sway back adjustment, removed 3cm total from back neckline, 5cm hem
Perfect for a few Sunday afternoon drinks with a lovely lady!
