This is the photo from the magazine
It can also be done in a contrasting fabric for the lower front skirt, which is cut on the bias.
The first one was in this multi-coloured/green fabric from a Hospice shop
As I really liked the dress I wanted to make another version, this time I raised the back neckline by 1", bought in the shoulders by 1" and raised the front neck by 3". I also lengthened the skirt by 4 1/4". While the green one is OK to wear around the house, I am much happier with this one and will happily wear it to the shops, barbeques etc.
To show off that interesting seam I added piping.
Also done are the 4th and 5th blocks of my quilt.
Also made in machine embroidery was an in the hoop pincushion in the shape of a house. Cute
