I'm so pleased were made the trip to Darwen, UK ... the home of Minerva Crafts and met these gorgeous and creative people. The Minerva meet up was great fun and truly memorable. A gala event of sewing proportions.
We're all wearing our gorgeous outfits for our Minerva night of nights.
I'm so glad I did travel to the UK and made my 'all things that sparkle' dress courtesy of Minerva Crafts using Butterick 6582.
The dress fit was perfect as you can see from the pics above and below.
This was an easy fabric to work with on just a plain, old sewing machine. This dress uses the corded sequined lace, lining and a normal zipper. Simple.
This fabric was perfect for such a special event and using this gold sequin, corded fabric for the logical option.You read about my little mishap but learnt how I fixed it. This fabric is gorgeous and easy to wear/dance in. There was no pre-washing involved. This is dry-clean only fabric.
I'm really pleased to have been part of Minerva's big meet up and got to make this fabulous party dress.
I had to put up another group pic! Check out the Minerva pics for yourself here.
