Simplicity Stashbuster

Hello there!

Last weekend I managed to complete my second stashbusting project for June, a dress using my black and white linen blend fabric and Simplicity 1652.

 
 
What attracted me to the pattern was the lovely cut out feature on the back:


I had to do quite a few alterations to get it to fit properly, which I've detailed here on my blog. 

Stash used on this project: 2m.

You look fab, I really like the fabric, it's a great print. And the red shoes - who doesn't love red shoes? :)

Hi Sam, I agree with Hana - the dress is lovely on you - I hope you find lots of nice places/events to wear it. The fabric is gorgeous, and looks fantastic with your red pumps.

PS - getting the cut out to sit nicely must have been tricky.

Thanks Jacq. Yes, red shoes are a must have in my book. In fact I need some more as these are REALLY high!
