    Finally I got a pattern (thank you fluffy tiger!!) :D



    And it was so much easier than I thought it would be! Used less than half of the net suggested too. I would have gone crazy with 48 yards of the stuff I think!!!!

    Well done dolly! You should also post this on the crinolines thread too! For inspiration for ladies to try to make their own.

    I am certain I will NEVER do a square neck again. We got into a fight and although it's not perfect it looks OK.
    Quite simply pink, you ROCKED that dress. It looks amazing on you!

    And where did you get those darling shoes!

    I remember a year or so ago when you made your first dress (which was really well made from the beginning) and now look at you--conquering square necklines and churning out amazing piece after amazing piece.

    Three cheers for Pink!

    Dottie & Zaika

    Thanks so much for the compliments!

    And Dottie
    I wouldn't say I conquered that neckline but I could say I refused to let it conquer me!

    Im glad you found it useful, it is increadibly easy, once you get going, but so boring to cut and sew, you just feel like you are sewing the same straight line forever, and yes you do feel like you may lose it but its so satisfying when you finish it and get it under a dress. I like your idea of using fabric at the top of yours,yours looks much less painful to sew I may try that on my next one, however I finished the pink and blue one I mentioned the other day in the full 48 yards in two afternoons (nowhere near the three hours Alice Lon's mum claimed they can be made she must have been a sewing trojan):-



    Darhling, that purple dress is so slinky and lovely, how easy was it to convert the pattern? I looks perfect

    Thank you! It is very slinky!! It was quite easy to convert the pattern, I think - but I really wish it wouldn't be so shiny with the flash, it is MUCH more subdued without/ in regular lighting.
