I bought some blue and white polka dot fabric to go with my newly coloured hair..and started looking for a pattern.
I found this adorable Retro Butterick pattern B5748, which I plan to use many many times..
I slightly adjusted the front of the dress and decided to leave the bow off the front of the dress.
The size i originally cut out was way too big, so I had to do a fair bit of adjusting to fit my bust and match the sides in order for the zip to fit.... you can kindaaaaa not really see how much I'm holding it here, but not really? hahah
I also got my makeup/hair done rockabilly, to match the dress :)
(You can see the change in neckline here, was rounded....)
and here is a couple of the finished product..
I got a lot of compliments on the day, and a stranger at the races even told me she loved my dress. So that was a big confidence booster :)
Then my friend Alicia asked if I would make her a similar dress for her engagement party.. and I told her I would be honoured... So we shall see how that goes :) EEEPP!!!!
