Fabulous! Wow, the white looks great on you. I see you made this in June. Here in NZ we are just getting into our summerness and so I chose this pattern - it's very madmen and definitely modern vintage. Thanks for sharing.

Lovely - the dress is great and looks terrific on you, too. I've had this pattern for a while now, so you've given me the incentive to get on with it. Well done!

Hi kias2. As requested - it was my local branch of Fenwicks at Newcastle upon Tyne. I tend to snap up fabric when I see something I like but not always in the correct amount for the final project I decide on!

What a flattering dress! It really caught my eye on the gallery view page.

Lovely dress on you. I never knew that Fenwicks did fabric - if you get a chance can you let me know what branch please.
