Fancy sewing: Fruity tutti dress

Spent Saturday afternoon finishing this fruity tutti dress. Was so happy with the result that I wore it twice in a row over the next two days. The pattern I've used was the V8555 from the Vogue Easy Options range. Am starting to understand the importance of lining even though it meant taking twice as long to finish a project. Really loving the abstract floral fabric, however am now contemplating on investing in better fabric now that I'm more confident with my sewing. Didn't have to make any alterations to the pattern apart from trimming 2.5 inches off the hem. Pretty confident that I'll be making a different version of this dress in the very near future.

Happy Friday everyone!


  1. Gorgeous and fits you so well! - I am put to shame with your creative output - too many UFO's in my sewing pile right now!

    1. Don't be. It took me many weeks to complete. I think I'll try out one your vintage patterns next week :)
