First of the Bridesmaid Dresses

I have spent most of my last two weekends attempting to make one of the bridesmaid dresses. The pattern is from Vogue and you can see it in the previous post. I must say it was a bit of a challenge. I've never made anything with lining AND interfacing. I'm also usually hopeless with darts as well but this time I marked them properly and based them before sewing.

The dress is made out of navy sateen. As you can see it will be accessorized with red shoes and red earrings as well as a bouquet of red flowers. I now have just one more of these to make and then another one in a different pattern for my maid of honour.

Yes I am busy busy busy!
