Finished!

Here’s a summary of my completed projects, with links to the relevant blog post. I really love watching this page grow!

Clothes

A dress in a knit fabric using New Look 6495 – I’ve brought the top in a bit since this photo was taken, and think it fits well. I’d love to work out how to add sleeves to this pattern in future!

A dress using New Look 6431 in a woven fabric – the bodice is far too large around the top, and could be more flattering at the waist/under the bust, I’m trying out toiles for my next one! collagemaker_20180414_160236358-339602803.jpg
