Well this must be the comfiest dress I've ever made! For my Autumn Sewalicious blog I decided to make the Sew Over It Heather dress in this stunning pinky floral scuba called Secret Garden.

Wedding season is here! And whilst there’s nothing better than watching two people you love get hitched [or drinking champagne all day] finding an outfit that makes you feel like a million bucks and isn’t identical to another guest can be a bit of a pain in the bum!
