Birthday Dress #1

This year is my 27th Birthday! (October 13th mark it on your calendar – Its black Friday this year)

For the last few years my birthdays haven’t been my usual look forward to the day for months in advance this year however I’m excited to celebrate my birthday with all my friends and family. On the Saturday I’m having a girly afternoon with cocktails in the vineyards with my friends, I can’t wait! One advantage of living where we do is that its only 30 minutes to one of the best wine regions in the country.

When Vivi sent me this fabric to showcase I knew it was going to be one of my birthday celebration outfits, and that it would be perfect for cocktails with the girls (I reserve the right to change my mind in the meantime).  I pulled out one of my old faithful patterns again (it was taped, graded and ready to go) M4M Mama Cassie. (aff link) this is the off the off the shoulder and hi-low hem option.

I love the way that this scuba from Wicked Fabrics drapes and skims over the mum tum. It’s nice and lightweight too, it was pretty windy the day that I took these photos and the skirt had a great movement without flashing the entire park! The finish on this scuba elevates this dress from casual to cocktail or date night ready. This classy white rose print is going to be a classic print in my wardrobe and I can see it getting worn a bit over summer.

I used up every last scrap of this fabric and had to add a centre back seam to the bodice to make the 1/2 circle skirt work. Thankfully because of the print its not super noticeable.

And did I mention? This pattern includes POCKETS!!!! Because every dress should have pockets (I really love pockets)

One pocket I’m going to affectionately refer to as ‘franken-pocket’ because I forgot to mirror image my cut on the last piece left big enough to cut said pocket.

This and a gorgeous floral teal scuba go live over at Wicked Fabrics on Thursday 28th September at 8pm make sure you set an alarm and get in quick. I know mine is set 😉
