Blogtoberfest Day 12/Strappy Sundress

Updated with an "action shot"



Love love love this dress. I love the twirly skirt (there is a whole 88" of fabric there!) and the straps and elastic back are such lovely details. The gathering did my head in a bit but it is so worth it. I've only just finished it, and Isabella is fast asleep but when she gets up I'll be putting this straight on her to try out the twirl-ability!

I used Anna Marie Horner's Drawing Room Fabric and this pattern. With that short break to finish it off, back to working on "proper" work. Ick.
