I decided a while ago that when a special occasion comes where a new dress is required, I must make one to suit me - and make it unique. So with this fabric waiting in my stash, the time had arrived for this dress...
The fabric, above, is "Gunvor" from Ikea. I used the converging curved stripes to define my waist - and wow, what an effect. This will look gorgeous dressed up (with a sequinned tux/blazer jacket) for my brother's wedding, or casual this Spring and Summer with flats and a little cardi.
