Wow, 2015 has really been the year of sewing for me. My latest finished garment is this polkadot dress that I started ages ago. This is definitely more mum’s creation than mine but I like the retro nurse look. The pics were taken on my recent jaunt to Rome.

Even with the front and back darts I prefer the look of this dress with a belt. I love love love the rainbow bias binding.

Here’s a closer shot of the top and collar. I got the buttons from the Joan Miro museum in Barcelona. Excuse my rapturous facial expression, this was life-changing gelato.
