Cherry dress - the finished product

I finally finished this dress today. I don't know if I want to wear it now because after days of working on it I'm kind of over cherries. The best way to describe my mental state is if you picture me being dragged backwards down a hospital hallway, wrapped in a straight jacket and screaming "Cherries! Cherries! LOTSA cherries!!" followed by appropriately maniacal laughter.

I might be exaggerating slightly. Here is the dress.

As you can see, it fits well. The length is great. It sits just below my knees and looks a bit 1940's (in my opinion). I'm usually not very interested in 40's styles but I like this one. I've previously made this dress in a mustardy yellow fabric which is above knee length and looks quite cute.

And it shows off all my tattoos pretty well too!

Is it just me or does it look kind of Christmas-y?


  1. Definitely very Christmassy ;-) Its a super cute dress. Very flattering!

  2. I love this! I actually own the same pattern but I've not gotten around to using it as I never thought it would look so nice sewn up. Did you do any mods, apart from the sleeves? :)

  3. Very cute and better than the pattern envelope view.
