I promised pictures of my colour block dress with me actually in it – last time I was ever so shy about modelling it. Well, I am still not sure about how to do the posing bit, but in the absence of any bright idea on modelling I just had DH take a few pictures…
So here is my version of the Burda dress in the flesh: There is me trying to look “neutral” 😉
And here the exposed zip again – I do rather like it.
I wore the dress for the first time today and I have to say I really like it. I got a lot of compliments as well and what is at least as good is that the dress is really comfortable. It is fitted, but I made it from ponte knit (rather than the woven that the pattern specifies) and so it is not restrictive at all.
I have never had a white dress, I always considered this to be simply too impractical, but I was extra careful at school today (only using white chalk, not wiping my hands, no horrible red marker pens etc) and so I came through the day unblemished.
So I would consider this a sewing success – which is as well, because the last dress I made was an epic fail…
One thing I do wonder about: Should I wear this dress with or without a belt? What do you think?
