Spottie Hot Bodice





This pattern arrived in the mail yesterday (oh ebay, how I love ye) and I made her up in red/white spot as a muslin today. The intention was to make the 'real' version in the rosebud fabric we bought at the fifties fair, but I don't know if I will now. The dress feels a bit 'fiddly' to wear, it has a strange strapless sort of arrangement under those straps which feels a bit insecure. Also, four billion darts and I'm not exaggerating!


Don't worry, ebay has come up with another pattern which will be perfect for rosebud! (details if and when I win the auction).



(Edited the next day to add a photo of the back straps, and to say: I was a bit grumpy after my darting marathon yesterday, and I can see today how this frock looks almost exactly as it does on the pattern envelope. That's pretty rare, so I am happy)

It may well feel 'fiddly to wear', but hubba hubba hey it sure looks saucetastic on!

What a great looking dress. Love the pattern. I am so envious!

Yeah, Kitty. I think you're just playing down the saucitude to garner compliments. So here's one. It's grouse. The muslin is good enough to wear.

It does *look* lovely, if you can get used to the fiddly feelings (sounds naughty, that does).
