Day 137

Finished! I am very pleased with how the sleeves went in…considering they’re the first dress sleeves I’ve ever done 🙂

Not sure I’ll ever get over the length of the skirt or number of pleats!

The advantage of keeping to the sizing in the pattern, bodice and skirt fit first time!


I’ve chosen to use a pink zip, pink thread and show the hem in pink, I think it works…
Unfortunately I drew on the pattern with a sharpie, whilst it rested on the fabric 😦 so there’s an orange streak – not sure if it’ll come out in the wash. Yesterday I bought some neon thread, maybe I’ll add a little embroidery 🙂 The pockets also work brilliantly, so all around, I’m pleased!





As to my pattern adjustments, it fits, perfectly – though I could probably do with shedding a lb or two 😉
