Miz Mozelle dress


If I wasn't sure of it yet, this week I had the confirmation of how awesome and sweet the ladies at the Sew Weekly are.
This week's theme was UFOs, which was the perfect occasion for me to finish a dress I had started in November. I had actually finished my version of the Miz Mozelle dress pattern, but the hem needed to be shortened and I was so underwhelmed by it that I never came around to do it.


If the fact that I didn't like my creation all that much wasn't enough, I had a VERY hard time taking pictures. The weather here has taken a cold turn and I had to step out for pictures with -10° C, which resulted in some terrible faces (and horrible hair, since I didn't style it properly).
All of this resulted in a very disappointing post and yet, all the comments I received were so heartwarming! I am really speechless at all the kind words I read!
Thank you so much, everyone! For those of you who want to know more about the dress, you can read it here (although I must admit I didn't do a great job at documenting the construction, I forgot most of it since November...).

    1. Eh, sono stata un po'deficiente, infatti mi sono tenuta un bel mal di testa per il resto della giornata! Però ieri ho ripetuto ed è andata molto meglio!

  8. Gorgeous. Love that colour but don't have anything in it as it does nothing for my skin tone. As a pair of pants/ a skirt maybe... Thanks for the inspiration. BTW you might want to get discus for your blog-openid tends to be crap on the best of days which means you're basically missing out on comments from anyone that isn't on blogspot/blogger.

  10. This is a very pretty dress and color. I love the keyhole detail on the bodice. Looking at the pictures, I really never would have guessed you had a difficult time with it.
