Another version of Butterick B4386 - alterations were squared neckline and lengthened through waist to accommodate my 6ft frame and long body!  Fabric is a lovely worstead in lavender from my stash.

This was made from a free pattern with an early Love Sewing Magazine - the Bella Dress.  Fabric is a petrol blue ponte roma.  Such a comfy, wearable dress.

This was a labour of love!  I had to map out the fabrics on a mini drawn version of the coat to work out the best placement.  Some upcycled upholstery fabric, some dyed and some new.  Interlined in brushed cotton for warmth, lined with bright pink silk.  Definitely a statement coat - I enjoyed the process but won't be repeating it!  :D

I recycled a dress that I made 4 years ago from Amy Butler's beautiful Bliss Bouquet fabric - the original dress (remaining bodice shown on left) had a calf length full skirt and the style just didn't suit me.  So, I cut it up and re-made it as a fitted shift dress - image on right - which looks fabulous!
