I can't believe MKG has turned into Gok Wan! Mike can you come round and review my wardrobe please which consists mainly of jeans, T shirts, trekking sandals, trainers and wellies. None designer I might add. :iconbiggrin:

Oh and I like the dress too! I'm not a dress person but I like the style of it. :thumbright:

Sorry, MMM - I've decided to deal only with celebrities and/or very rich (but completely tasteless) people.

It's the only way ...

Probably sensible, after all I can't afford to pay you very much for your services. :wink:

Ooo I like it, it's got a kind of 40's retro vibe going on. Where did you get the pattern?

Still not finished, had another disagreement with the sewing machine whilst quilting so it's still just tacked together waiting to be sewn properly. :oops:
Puddleduck: I made it up, I used the bottom of a wrap around dress I have for the template for the bottom bit and just messed around with the top.

not even a little bit of frump. it's lovely, and a classic style so it'lll never go out of fashion. do your seams well and take care of it, it'll last you.
