i tell you, i'm never going to be able to wipe the grin off my face this time! not much to say other than
'LOOK WHAT I MADE!!!!!'
from the stylish dress book this time, i really do seem to be lured in by the dress on the covers of these Japanese craft books (but then there are also a lot of other patterns in this book i plan to make too)
i used a neutral linen blend to make it, with a few small snippets of Denyse Schmidt's hope valley fabric & a little lace on the pockets (i do love a pocket)
this one came together easy enough, slightly more tricky than the last, but nothing too scary
& i love, love, love it, so much so that i've been wearing it all weekend (but i have needed to throw on a 3/4 length t underneath - just to keep the chill off)
there's no stopping me now
