i recently discovered all of the glory that is bernie dexter, and of all of the amazing clothing she makes, this dress blew me away!

i needed it. badly. i love how sweet and sexy it is…. i love everything about it, so being the person i am, i made it sunday afternoon! check it out!

not too far off if i may so so! i used butterick b5033, which i’ve had laying around, sadly ignored for a good while now, and i think it was absolutely the perfect pattern for this! i obviously altered the cut out, and it had to bring out the top a bit so i could make the heart so big, but aside from that it was a perfect pattern to use. i didn’t even alter the size at all. it was absolutely perfect!

so, like always, more on my blog!

All I can say is YES this is so cute and yet sexy at the same time. I know what I will be doing this Easter weekend in good old U.K. Thanks for the inspiration, as always X
