A Davey Dress For St Patrick's Day
The dress is made of ponti. The black was from my stash and originated from the op shop but the floral was bought from Backstreet Bargains. It is quite difficult to find nice printed ponti. This stuff is nice quality and has a really nice sheen to it and good recovery. I like that it looks a bit like lace.
The dress did require quite a bit of fitting. I ended up letting out the waist, which is no surprise because Courteney is not the pear shape that this pattern is drafted for. I also ran in the skirt quite a bit because it was quite full and the ponti made it seem fuller than it was. From memory I had to take it in a bit under the arms as well.
Courteney messaged me these photos tonight as she was getting ready for her party. Actually if I tell the truth, she messaged one and I liberated the second from Facebook....shhh.....she will never know!
