First Summer Dress in the Wardrobe

I've been up to a few things in November, but have just never found time to share.  So firstly I'd like to give you a look at my summer dress.  It doesn't look much just hanging on the hanger, but self-portraits aren't looking any better.  You will need to believe me, it looks way better on!

I'm really looking forward to santa getting me a dress form for Christmas, then I can get some decent photos of my projects to share with you all.

The dress is a New Look pattern 6013 - very easy to cut and sew.  I needed to adjust the pattern to allow for wider hips and length to allow for my height (5'9").  The dress is a delight to wear, feels like a glove and makes me want to make more - however I've got far to many other patterns I want to sew before repeating the same pattern!
Originally I was going to line the dress, but decided against this, instead I did decided the the inside of my dress needed to look just a stunning as the outside.  So the seams are french seams and the hem is hand sewn.
After I finished the dress I wasn't sure whether I liked it or not because it looked more camo than animal print.  However, since wearing it a few times and receiving some very lovely comments I think it is very now!  (oh and I am into NOW).
