Way back when, Hannah, from Made With Hugs and Kisses, released this FREE pattern download. I printed it out straight away.
And then it sat in my ‘to do’ pile for nearly a year and a half. Oops, sorry Hannah!
Anyway, to cut a long story short, I finally got round to making it up during my ‘old stuff remake’ sessions that I mentioned before.
This was originally a sickly sweet strapless dress, (ick!) which I NEVER wore. But it was made from lovely brushed organic cotton that my mum gave me.
Due to the cut of the dress, I had to be rather creative with recutting this pattern, so you can see some random seam lines on the peplum, but I don’t mind them at all as they are symmetrical.
I tried to pattern match wherever I could, but was hindered by the lack of fabric again.
Without doubt, my favourite part of this make is the beautiful covered buttons, which were a christmas gift from a friend.
I think the top works well tucked in or out and I’m definitely looking forward to wearing it in the summer!
