I was inspired by another sewer to make this dress. She made it in a lovely animal print and it so attracted me to this pattern. It is such a same that I do not have any contact details to ask if I can provide a link to her dress and to take the credit for my inspiration.
I am not entirely sure where I bought the fabric as I have had it some time but I think it was Minerva Crafts. It's still available HERE in the Emerald Green and loads of other colours too.
I love this raised neckline and I love the gathers.
The pumpkin orange dress I made back in October Blogged Here had become my favourite pattern out-doing McCalls 6801 but now this has even out-done the pumpkin orange (Vogue 8742)
I like this pattern so much that I will be using it again as originally planned, for the family event and it will be on my cutting table very soon!
But for now this Christmas Green has come up tops and is my favourite dress :)
Thanks for stopping by ~ Keep smiling :)
