Jenny made this amazing dress and I asked her to review the pattern so others can get as inspired as we did at the club.Although Jenny is new to sewing, difficult fabrics and patterns don't stop this talented lady.

Pattern Review - Vogue Pattern V8556
Time to make: 3 days /or/ 15 hours
Material: Turquoise Satin
Event: Summer Ball
This dress was much more challenging than I thought it would be. My sewing skills are moderate and I had only made ‘easy’ dresses up til now.
The satin was tricky to work with and the pattern was the most difficult I had done so far.
The pattern construction is rather technically demanding – as I find is the case with most Vogue patterns.
The draped midriff and the bias skirt make this dress very flattering.
It came up a tad small for me even though I had used my exact measurements but it still fitted and looked lovely on the night.
Thank you Jenny, at the club we cannot wait to see your 4 bridesmaids dresses you making for your dad's wedding in 1 month.
