More work than necessary

My last dress is finished except the hem, can’t decide if I’ll put a ribbon round it or just fold it.Image I used one of my vintage patterns that looks really cool for the second time. Only it’s a 38 and I’m not, so I had to alter it.

Last time it became waaay to big and I had to take it in and make a nice pleat in the front to make it fit. Image

This time I decided I wouldn’t be so generous with the alterations, and yes, you guessed it, it was to small so I had to let it out instead.

Really, why bother with all this when I have literally hundreds of patterns?  It’s not THAT special! Although I  really like how the other one came out in the end. Photo green dress: Paddy K
