An Office Dress (sponsored post)


As you might have guessed my July project for Minerva Crafts Blogger Network is now live.

This month I fancied making an office dress. After some thought, I’ve decided it was about time I make view B of Butterick 6094 which has been on my To Do list for a long time.

Although I’ve had some issues making this dress, I am glad I made it. It’s one of my favourite makes and love that when I wear this to the office I feel like I am the best dressed that day.
