One of my last discoveries of 2013 was Mod Dolly. I have browsed Mod Dolly in the past but nothing had really caught my eye, most of the styles are too short and smock like to suit my frame. However their latest style, Hanna, is absolutely perfect for me. I requested that the sleeves were made longer and the dress was whipped up and shipped to me in no time at all. And isn't she a beauty?! I can't wait to see the new fabrics for SS14, eeekk! My quest for the perfect tartan dress is finally over. I now have one that ticks all the boxes - a fitted waist, full skirt and sleeves. Lovely. I love the blue/green tartan colours and may have to give into my fear of green tights as I think they will really work with the dress. I am wearing dark grey ones here though the lighting wasn't good enough to really show that.
Dress: Mod Dolly
If you have any sewing tips for me please share, any help is much appreciated.
