Christmas dress update (it's looking better)!

Thanks for the words of encouragement and I have taken some of your advice. So with minimum alterations for maxium impact I have added a cute little belt and halved the the length of the sleeves and : .................

not bad hey?

Everyone had some lovely idea and really did spur me on not to bin it. I also think Meg is so so right when she added you have to learn to love something, I'm not always totally impressed with what I make and I just couldn't waste all that time effort fabric and patterns just to bin it. So yes a smile has returned!

Thanks everyone. x x x
