Vogue 2960 – all finished

And presented to you prior to the wash – so please ignore the blue chalk marks that litter the garment.

 Thanks to everyone in this wonderful community for your assistance in the fitting.

I am wearing a crinoline under the skirt to give it a bit of volume.  Its not very ‘foofy’, I may boost it up or make a new one.  Do you think it could be more voluminous ?

Next thing on the list is a cute fluffy pink angora bolero from Bea’s knit along, teams with it perfectly methinks?

Not much more to be said, but you’re welcome to visit me here.

A lovely dress! I can see you at a tea party in the garden. :)

Very nice! I have this pattern, but was never really sure how I felt about it. Now that I can see it made up and fitted properly I really like it a lot (and I'm always one to go for an over the top poofy crinoline). Well done!

Really nice! The neckline, bodice, shape of the skirt – so flattering!!

Beautiful dress and lovely fabric. I think the crin is giving it just the right amount of volume, more and it would pull out the pleats which are such a lovely detail.

the dress is so beautiful! I love the fabric also, the volume is perfect for me.

So pretty! I love the neckline and the fabric covered buttons.

Gorgeous! It is so feminine and all goes together perfectly. The bolero will be gorgeous as well! Love it!

Oh yey! So pretty! I have this pattern, but I just forgot about it when I never saw any finished versions that pleased me… But you just gave me new hope! I'm so going to make that dress now. :) And the bolero is really cute.
