Laura: Butterfly Dress

I'm just going to start this post by saying I LOVE this fabric and pattern so much. It fits so well and the fabric is just so summery perfect for this weather we have been having!
I mean seriously how lovely is this.

The pattern I drew up my self, I don't even know where to start to explain how to do this.. I just get out my pattern paper and pattern master and do it. I suppose starting off with your basic bodice and dress blocks is a good place to start then I start to trace them and alter them to my working drawing which is in my head most of the time. 

The pattern pinned onto the lovely fabric and ready to cut!  I actually made the skirt too wide at my hips looked a bit like a umpa lumpa to start with. I must think my bum is bigger than what it is. 

I have a thing for capped sleeves, there so easy to put in plus they hide mistakes really well.

The back I made into a shallow V along with a slit neck at the front.

& the finished dress...

Apologies for my :/ face.. I really don't like my photo being taken.. but having taken some tips from Tilly and the buttons recent post about how to make your photos look better. I though I would give it a go instead of lots of mirror selfies.

Thanks for reading
