Vogue 6744…

I am excited to share another dress with you …

I used a lovely weighty stretch satin, with the nicest leopard print I have seen in a long time.  I think it is an early 60s pattern, but Vintage Pattern Wiki couldn’t help me – I would love to know the year…

The construction went smoothly, however the cape thingy and the facings were a little fiddly.  I don’t usually use facings, I use self fabric bindings instead, because I think facings add unnecessary bulk.

I made this dress for a special occasion – I was very fortunate to be awarded a scholarship towards my study costs for this year…YAY!!!

I can now go on the fashion study tour this year, which is going to Barcelona, Paris, and London in September – to say I can’t wait is a MASSIVE understatement :-)

My very fave red patent leather shoes and (fake) belt look great with the fabric, just the right splash of colour.

I hope you are all having a lovely Easter…feel free to stop by my blog
