The Coral Dress and Top is the first in the new Diva Collection and it's a really versatile pattern. I made the dress length in size 9/10, using mainly Kaffe Fassett fabrics which had been sitting on my cutting table waiting for the appropriate inspiration. I tend to drool over Kaffe fabrics and procrastinate, but their time had come to be cut.
The bodice is completely shirred, making it so easy to fit all body types.
It's the middle of winter here in Sydney, so my model (who also happens to be my granddaughter) kept in perpetual motion to ward of the chilly temperatures.
What a trouper. Mind you, she had just returned from a week in the snow, so she considered the Sydney temperatures to be fairly mild.
