What I Wore Wednesday

This is another dress I made using the same dress pattern as my first two. I really liked this unusual Prints Charming fabric, and it's a thin poplin too. A bit different to the drill of the other dresses. I lined the skirt of this one cos I thought the fabric would be a bit too see through. I altered the bodice again after I wore it the first time cos it was too unflattering and I looked pregnant! I also added the border at the bottom cos it was a bit too short.

This dress cost about $18 to make.
Fabric: $15
Zip: $2
Pattern: well it cost $6 but I'm dividing by the number of dresses I plan on making, so that's $1.
Lining: I used some poplin I bought when Tassy was a baby.

Dress: Made by me
Shoes: Big W
Belt: Cotton On
Necklace: Made by me

SPECTACULAR isnt it great reusing a pattern defining it to personal fit and taste, a true dressmaker. I don't know what I said to Barney Cheng in HK but he asked me was I a dressmaker... Love your designing such as the hem band, FABULOUS job. Keep up the great work. love you aaj

I love you Prints Charming dress. I have bought the same fabric. I love your photos. I love the 'movement'. I love how your necklace (did you make it) and your shoes match perfectly. You look fabrulous.
