Hello. I'm not entirely sure why but I've wanted to make a camouflage evening dress ever since we got married, over 26 years ago....................
...............and I've finally done it! I even made a matching clutch bag. Can you spot it?
We had great fun at the party last night and my dress was a bit hit. It made me laugh as a couple of people thought I'd been chopping up hubby's combats! Don't worry though he's not running around with bits of his uniform missing - I did buy the fabric.
The photo above was taken at the end of the night as I was going up to bed............
................so here's a better one taken in daylight. It's a Simplicity Amazing Fit pattern (1606) and I was really pleased with how it turned out. It's not perfect but I learnt a lot and it probably fits better than my shop bought dresses.
The clutch bag is from the CD-ROM that came with issue 2 of Debbie Shore's Sew Inspired magazine. I was happy to find out that they work perfectly on my iMac - everything can be accessed through Finder, including the video links in case anyone else is wondering this.
I'll definitely be making them both again in a more normal evening style.
Before I go, don't forget that Barbara has a Claritystamp show on Hochanda this Sunday (6th Dec) at 2pm.
