Welcome to my Blog where I aim to chronicle and share my experiences in Sewing. My Wonderful Mum taught me how to sew many moons ago, but I hadn't sewn for many years until 2012 when my now husband and I decided to get married in Lapland.The only way I could create "The Winter Queen" image I had, was to make it myself. It re-kindled my love of sewing and have been sewing ever since. And yes, that is me in my profile photo…

Embellished Bodice Evening Dress
Jane Norman Evening Dress
I didn't make this dress! In fact it wasn't even new for this cruise. But it is the final dress I wore for the last of the formal evenings. I am not sure what it is made of but its just a lightweight stretchy knit, making the fit of it perfect and topped with a lovely flowing chiffon-like fabric. The bodice is gathered on the bust and embellished with the wide black trim.
I bought this dress from Jane Norman but unfortunately it is no longer available. However there is a very similar one HERE in a gorgeous pillar box red.
