Paired with red accessories this dress would be perfect for a Valentines dinner, don't you think! This is the dress I made last year for my wedding anniversary but didn't get around to writing about. Tomorrow it won't be getting an outing though, as my husband and I have a parent teacher meeting at my son's new school.....I know, great timing right! No matter, Valentines day really isn't high on my list of priorities anyway.
Both of the pieces of fabric are a cotton sateen with a small amount of stretch. I would say the black is more like a drill but has a very nice sheen to it unlike normal stretch drill.
I really like this simple style of dress. As I am not a tall person, it compliments my height and because I am not a particularly flamboyant person, it also suits my personality. I would like to make this style again, perhaps next time with sleeves or maybe even a Peter Pan collar, which seems to be popular at the moment.
