I tried a new pattern.
I do have to wonder, who is this pattern marketed at? It is beige, and on an older model, yet it is a really 60's youthful looking pattern. Doesn't the silhouette remind you of something Mary Quant would make or Twiggy would wear back in the sixties?
Anyhow, it was a really simple pattern and super quick to make, so I loved it. I made the dress from a craft cotton (bought on sale of course). I made the non-pleat version as I like things simple.
Oooh, and I just want to say, if I was a dinosaur, I would definitely want scales like the pattern on this dress :)
Fabric close up.
This is it plain. A little boring I think. I am wearing the matching belt, but it's hard to see. I am also not sure if I want to accentuate my hips by wearing a belt there, I prefer belts high on my waist as on the waist gives me a better silhouette.
And the back.
How I will wear it-or do you think it looks too christmassy?

I enjoyed this pattern so much, I made another one straightaway-I will put it up soon :)
