This Vogue 2797 dress was made for me by my mother, about 8 years ago. I had bought the fabric and pattern, thinking it would be perfect if I ever needed to go on a boat cruise. Not that I frequently went on boat cruises. Then I was given a last-minute invitation to the local tourism awards, which started with a boat cruise. I was working at the time, and with my first bubba in tow, I didn't have the time to stitch it up. Luckily for me, my mother was visiting, and she spent the day stitching it up for me. Though I do remember being just a teeny bit jealous that she was home sewing a dress whilst I had to go to work. Thanks Mum!
I have not worn it often, but I pulled it out to go to the school ball on the weekend.
It is the same pattern that was used to make this dress. I love getting 2 completely different garments from the same pattern.
