    This is so beautiful! It really suits you and your style, I love the idea of using the selvedges as piping!
    Good luck with the competition. I know there are a lot of entries, I have no idea how Tillly is going to create a shortlist. But I’m sure this beauty will be in it.

  5. I’ve been having so much trouble commenting from bloglovin lately, but I just had to come back and say that I was devastated for you when this dress did not make the cut! It is so perfect in every way. You have my vote. Merry Christmas Bec xx

      Thanks Nicki! I’ve been having the same problem commenting, its such a hassle! Thanks so much…I really did think my dress had a good chance and was disappointed that I didn’t make the shortlist. But either way I have a fantastic dress that I’m so proud of. :) Hope you have a great Christmas too!!!

    This dress is stunning! I feel like it can be both casual and dressy, and yes I would have included it in the shortlist! Great job on matching the stripes – I am not sure I would have taken such painstaking steps myself since the stripes are so fine! Also I wanated to say your sketch looks absolutely like u:). Can I ask why you chose to quilt the lining though? I am not too experienced a sewer and all the sewing blogs are really opening my eyes to new techniques!

      Thanks so much Sunie! I do love that I can dress this up or down, it’s really versatile. The quilting helps to give the fabric more structure, the weave is quite loose & drapey on its own. :)
