If you haven’t seen my previous Sudley make, check it out here. I love this pattern and do sing its many praises in that post.
Basically, I want this dress in as many options as my wardrobe can physically hold, all of them, one for everyday of the year. But luckily I have paced myself by being fussy with getting the most perfect fabrics suited for this pattern.
So How Did It Sew?
(completed: 4th March 2017)
The material was from my cheap shop, its a very light chiffon type fabric. I adore the pattern, which is rare for me. I originally bought it to wear with my pink hair (it has a touch of the baby pink through it) But the Purple really compliments my current colour. It was a challenge with this fabric due to the lack of colour and pattern in my wardrobe. But I also know will need it in the summer, and it has become the perfect Sudley.
I did consider lining it, but to be honest, I would rather layer it as an extremely light layer than attach a permanent lining. Plus I have many slips stored away somewhere in the depths of my wardrobe… somewhere.
The only issue I had was the hem… I fucked it up guys! Everything was going so well until I decided to Re-hem it much shorter. I should have just left well alone, it now is slightly higher at the front than the back. That is what happens when you rush… although it is still completely wearable.
