My 28th B-day

For some reason I wanted to have a picnic and go dancing for my Birthday. It wasn't a special Birthday date, but I like getting people together and planning things. So I did both and that means I needed a party dress. I found this pattern on and made the dress over a weekend. I bought the fabric from Fabrix and decided to use the opposite side of the fabric. The other side was too light. I made some changes to the pattern. I added an extra high slit for dancing, a belt to cover some bad sewing, and buttons everywhere because I learned how to do button holes while making this dress. I like the red touches of satin at the bust and on the pockets. I think it fits really well and I am glad at the way it turned out.

P.S. I like the picture in the top right because I actually have some cleavage from this dress :)

  1. One activity I adore is a nice picnic with friends and family gathered. I so enjoy the conviviality and eating in the fresh air. Once there were a few musicians among them and we enjoyed a sing along with all the other fun.
