I used the same pattern for this dress as I did for my gingerbread dress but this time around I used the pencil skirt pattern. The dress was easy breezy to make. For the first time I didn't have any setbacks or turmoils. The only thing is that when trying it on for the last time it suddenly felt a bit tight at the waist. Come to think of it perhaps that is the greatest setback of all! There's nothing worse than clothes that are too small. I walked around in it for a while and it wasn't too bad though. Perhaps I just shouldn't eat half of a Mississippi mud pie before I slip into this particular dress. There's nothing I'm going to do about it now - I've got bias tape along all major seams on the inside and that's not exactly something I want to undo!
footnote: this dress will also be perfect for a gathering in mid May with some very inspiring girls! More about that later but the theme is union jack inspired - blue, red and white!
footnote 2: I don't know what happened to the map. I think it just wanted to match the general messiness taking place in my room at the moment.
