This was the first Vogue 1179 I made, but I have only managed to get the photos organised. We went away for a week-end to attend a family engagement party. It was a great little dress to pack and take for this kind of occasion.
I look very white in these photos which were taken in our motel room. My hair had the copper foils added the week before so I wonder if the strong colours of my hair and dress wash me out a little.
In this dress the fabric is lighter than the patterned one, and the fact I probably need a swayback alteration is more apparent. Always interesting how different fabrics can sit so differently.
The patterned version is a big favorite of mine and has been worn to the office every week since I made it. This teal one is reserved as my "going out" version. Does anyone else categorise their clothes that way?
Ciao.. activewear coming up next.
