Weigel’s 2039 in blue crepe

Another new favourite dress, I love this pattern, I made a version in lovely green and black houndstooth over here.  And when I found this lovely blue crepe in an op shop, I had to make the slim skirted version, it was the perfect colour.  I’m sure you all know how exciting that can be!  So, here are the finished photos…

I went for sleeveless this time, and I have enough fabric left to make another dress too, so that worked out just fine.

I have been wearing it a lot lately, and it wears well, is comfy and so very blue!

I spent a bit of time working on the bodice for the best fit, I took some photos along the way, and shared some tips I have found useful.  Many more photos about the making over on my blog of course.
