PATTERN: Colette Peony
FABRIC: black and pink roses £8 per metre, Syed Fabrics, Walthamstow market
TIME: 5 hours
Sew with the fabric suggested on the envelope-a thin peony is much easier than a thick felty woolly one!
Sleeves 3/4 length
My first independent neck facing
Sewing in my new labels!
A far better invisible zip
Had to do more slashing off the back when I fitted the zip so it wasn't too baggy
But I love it!
My first home made dress worm out to work- got a compliment on it by 9am!
