A Dress for a Wedding

I have recently attended a wedding .

It was for my husband’s niece.

It was absolutely beautiful as I knew it would be!One shoulder dress edit

My self imposed project leading up to the wedding was to make a dress to wear. I am sure that you have all been in this type of position and the quest for the perfect dress was challenging , none the least because I had really enjoyed myself over the christmas festive season and as such am not as fit as I would like to be at the moment.

The pattern I found was on Craftsy from Pattern Runway and a downloadable PDF pattern.




These are the pattern details. For the fabric I selected this gorgeous border fabric it felt like silk I had it in my stash without details, and I lined it fully with a bemsilk lining to give it a bit more body.

This was lovely to make I used some charcoal chiffon for the bow to soften it.

The dress has a hem facing so it is very lovely and structured my only problem is I again wanted to use as much as possible of the fabric pattern and as such it is a little longer on me than the picture. This means I can’t stride out in it, small steps only which is ok in heels I guess but not if you are in a hurry.


This is a pattern I will definitely use again it was relatively quick ,is amazingly comfortable and feels divine on. A Winner in my book!!

I think you could make this as a summer day dress with a difference. It is fun and easy make. I think I may add pockets to my next one, I do love  pockets.

Do you have a go to evening pattern or style that is tried and true for you?

Hope you are enjoying whatever you do, the weather is turning colder here now, Autumn is trying to settle in but some days still have a touch of Summer.

I am sewing up a storm for Winter. I will fill you in as I get it done.

Happy Sewing ,

Sue 🙂
