I made this dress aaaages ago now, 6 weeks according to Instagram. These photos are pre Christmas and pre my new funky hair cut too. I look pretty much like a ghost in them too but ya know, the urge to blog coupled with CBA with taking more photos just yet means they are getting used! I absolutely adore this dress, it is a cotton sateen so a lovely weight with a lovely finish. Feels pretty luxurious compared to standard cotton and wears really well. I realise I didn't include a close up of the cute print so here you go, it's cute little deers and although I made it as a Christmas dress it is more of a winter dress so hasn't been put away with the rest of them. I only have 5 dresses that fit me well at the moment so need this beauty! I seem to have a thing for spots and dots at the moment, most of the dresses I have on current rotation feature them and the ones I need to get made ready for my 40th birthday are both spotty too. Urgh, am looking forward to my birthday but not to turning 40. I'M NOT READY.
I've got a free evening tonight so I am going to whip up a quick dress to give me another choice for work before then making myself two new dresses from cotton sateen fabric to wear for my birthday weekend, I need to schedule in some sewing time over the next week to get it all done in time. I have missed sewing and am itching to get started, never enough hours in the day.
