Party Dress Entry

November 30, 2009

As another member said recently, having silly season party dresses made from cotton is an absolute must in Australia! My dress looks a little casual compared to some of the gorgeous taffeta creations we’ve seen so far, but it’s a party dress none the less! Friends and I are going out for mai-tais as soon as exam results are out (whether it is to celebrate or drown our sorrows remains unclear as of yet :/ )

The pattern is one I’m sure many of you are familiar with – Butterick 6582. The facings left me in tears, but I pushed through and am overall pretty happy with the results (as long as you don’t look too closely!) Stories about how others tackled this dress would be much appreciated – I’d love to get some hints before I try making the full skirted version 🙂
