Twirly Dress Vogue V8577

This is my first post for We Sew Retro. this is a dress I’ve been meaning to make for quite some time and even after cutting it out a couple of months ago, it was still weeks before I actually began putting it together. During those weeks I’d somehow managed to lose the instructions, so putting the dress together was something of a head scratcher. Despite that though, it finally went together without too much bother, and I’m pretty happy with the end result. The skirt is super twirly.

Apologies for the fuzzy photos, my family are tired of taking photos of my creations, and these were taken by my reluctant 14 year old.

Your dress is very pretty. I like the white color on that pretty print fabric. Great job.

PS I meant collar, not color, sorry I didn’t proof read.

Wheeee!! Such a fun dress. I really like the white details on it – they add just that little something extra!
