At Christmas my husband bought me 2m of this lovely fabric from Fancy Moon.
I decided I wanted a dress, but with only 2m and a very distinct pattern it had to be a slim skirted version.
I drafted a bodice using my own block, added some cap sleeves and used the pencil skirt from Gertie's first book.
I was really careful with the pattern placement on the bodice and managed to match the pattern on the bodice back quite well. Unfortunately I didn't have enough fabric to match the back of the skirt.
The bodice is lined with a light cotton muslin and I underlined the skirt with the same fabric. The shell fabric just needed a little extra body.
I finished the dress way back in February, but it had been too cold to wear. I did wear it a couple of weeks ago when we had the warm spell. Just waiting for it to get warm enough to have this in regular rotation.
