Something Blue FINISHED...

Ok, So this was meant to be for the blogger meetup but I have decided to unveil it early.
I wore this for the Royal Wedding and was hemming it at 8am frantically before going to a party.
This is Lisette 2209 the cute dress with cross darts on the bodice. I don't think having a patterned fabric on the top made the most of the darts and I think the cotton was a bit thin. But it is flattering.
I didn't have chance to line it but I should have really, It looks nice on but It ended up a bit tight on the waist.
I've also used this as my Sew Weekly Hat outfit, I paired it with my white 1950s hat for a kind of sailory vibe.
I've decided that It was too rushed to wear for the blogger meetup. So any suggestions for another Red White and Blue outfit, let me know!


  1. I think it looks fantastic! I love the red, white and blue with the pale blue beads. I finished this dress a month ago but I still have not hemmed it. Must do.

  2. It's so cute! I've never seen darts like that before, might give it a try :)
