My kids are not old enough for me to start nagging them about the importance of exams, yet, but today I can honestly say that I have used an 'O' Level; I only took them 25yrs ago!!!
So I made a Staple Dress, the full monty including pockets and facings! I even altered the neckline.
Unfortunately by the time I was finished, it was dark, so no modelling... that's my excuse and I am sticking to it. As I mentioned the other evening, I have not added the elasticated waist; my waistline is not built for accentuating!!
So I will wear it with a sparkly disco belt, because I am like that, (well, when I am not at work, not at school or in my pyjamas...). I will get a photo or two tomorrow, but I am making no promises on whether I will be in it, (but best you see me in it than out of it though!).
You don't need an 'O' Level in Dress to make this. April has produced a foolproof pattern and instructions. It took me 3 hours to make, including cutting, putting the kids to bed and trying on a couple of times.
It still has an air of 'heading into the operating theatre', but without the bum-flasher back; I am more than happy. Next, to tackle a jersey version... maybe.
