Sew: Vogue 1027 for L

A good friend of mine, let's call her L, turned 40 last month. She's a very good friend who has put up with me at the park every Friday morning for the last 5 years. I really wanted to get her something special for her birthday. Being such a big birthday and also because she's simply lovely. But what to get her?? A handmade dress of course!

Now, I don't sew for others very much at all. I knew L would really appreciate the thought, and my time and effort, so I selected a beautiful piece of jersey from my stash and set to work. A few hours later I had a present!

Project Details
Pattern: Vogue 1027, size 14
Fabric: An amazing piece of jersey from Anna

It looks smashing on her. And she absolutely loves it!
