As you may have read in my posts 'Here's one I made earlier' and 'Here's another one I made earlier' I make my own frocks. Being rather short shop bought dresses are always way too long and I begrudge paying for a dress only to lob off six inches of fabric.
We’re off on another cruise in June and as there will be two formal evenings I always try and make at least one cocktail dress per cruise. I’ve scoured the various pattern websites for dress patterns and I’ve finally come up with a shortlist.
As I’m a self taught dressmaker I’ll tackle anything so it makes no difference if the pattern is for beginners or advanced, I buy it simply because I like it. There have been times though when I’ve ‘improvised’ or done it my own way to make things easier. May and Patrick from the Sewing Bee would be horrified !!!!
Here’s the final seven. I’ll definitely be making one, possible two, but I can’t decide on which one. Which one would you choose?
Have a great week.
