I received this fabric from the lovely Helga von Trollop at Helgastock2014 a few weeks ago! It is just fabulous and exactly the right fabric for a new frock. Thank you Helga, I LOVE it!
As the fabric is so bright and busy I kept the pattern very simple.
This is the slip dress from McCalls 6646.
I added in a second should strap as one on each side looked a bit insubstantial. No other alterations.
Here are some of my photos from Helgastock2014 - other installments from saucy wenches Sarah and Helga can be seen here and here
I have not been commenting on blogs for the last couple of weeks as I am still getting my bearings with my recently revamped life. I feel bad for this but I am still responding to comments at least! I start part-time work next week and have been industriously buying home wares in purple to decorate my house... when I'm not sitting on the couch watching all the Harry Potter films for the billionth time.
