I got to wear this dress for the first time on a recent holiday to Amsterdam, so these photos are all real life shots from my holiday.
I met up with my cousin Donna in Amsterdam and we had about 10 days of girl time in Europe, it was great fun. Here we are visiting a statue of Anne Frank, the house where she and her family hid during the war is just around the corner from here.
The dress pattern is designed to be worn with a belt, as there is no button placement at the waist so that a belt buckle can sit nicely. I wish now that I had just moved the button placements so that one sat at the waist as I don't intend to wear a belt with mine, and now after sitting it gapes a bit at the waist. Oh well, a hidden press stud shall do the trick I think.
This is also my first goal completed for the lovely Katy's Finish-Along: link in my sidebar-->
Unfortunately I didn't get to wear it again when we went to Paris, as it crinkled really easily and there were no irons in any of the rooms that we stayed in. But it certainly was a me-made holiday! I wore my two Moneta Maxi dresses (only one photo!?) as well as a Butterick top:
And there is one other new dress that I made for this holiday, which I'll share in my next post!
