Fancy sewing: Not a polka dot dress

No excuses, I have been a lazy blogger. Can't promise when regular blogging will resume, but in the meantime, I'll share with you my latest sewing project. This pattern (Vogue V8664) was bought from the Vogue online sale last month. To be honest, I wasn't too impressed when I saw it on the internet. I was looking for some work appropriate patterns and didn't really pay much attention to it when I bought it online. The drawings on the packet was not at all inspiring, however this is definitely a prime example of why one should never judge a book by its cover.

This dress is perfect! It is not at all boring like I imagined. The dress has a bit of a 50's feel to it, it hugs the body at all the right places and is super comfortable to wear. The dress was very easy to make, it took me 3 weekends to make but if you were to add up the hours, it probably took less than a day all together. Although you can't see it while it is worn, I have added a bright blue lining to the dress which I think has made it just that little bit more special. I can't wait to wear it to work tomorrow and am already planning my next project using the same pattern.

On a side note, I have just joined instagram, it is quite addictive! My username is "forgottenfancies", what's yours? Do leave a comment and I would love to follow you.
