Don't you just love snow days :) with all this white stuff around it's allowed for more sewing time. so the dress I wanted to make last September is finally getting a look-in. It's the Matthew Williamson Dress from 09/2012 edition of burda, pattern #134
Because of the style line on the dress and the lovely fabric I've chosen I decided to toile the dress. It was a good decision too. Seen as I'm more of a jump straight in kinda gal.
The fabric I've used to toile is actually from a pair of left over curtains, their very itchy though!!! My major bug bear was the pockets that this pattern has, good concept but from the side they look awful, all jutting out and creating weird angles.
This pattern does requires some tweaks (see below)
I may even toile again, just to make sure the pocket removal goes to plan.
And once I'm convinced it's perfected, This gorgeous fabric will be it's destination.
