When in Rome

As the title may suggest, I have just come back from a weekend trip in Rome. While I was out there, I took the chance to take some photos of a dress I made recently. It was a new experience for me making this dress - firstly because I've never actually made a circle skirt before (even though it's supposed to be one of the easiest) and secondly because I fully lined it. This had the advantage of making the edges a lot neater and could be seamed on the inside making it look a lot nicer inside and out (although you obviously can't see this in the photos). I'm definitely very pleased with how it turned out considering I was trying out completely new things (a few imperfections but I won't mention those!). 
I'm free for a whole month now so will be back to regular blogging and I'm looking forward to catching up on all your blogs!

What do you think of my dress? How was your weekend?

    1. haha yes lots of gelato! We were right in the centre of Rome so lots of sights to go and see. Thank you very much, I'm glad you like the dress!(The arm was my brother's, trying to ruin my photos by jumping in front of them - I quite like it though, makes me look like I'm being prepped for a shoot or something!)
