Love is in the air

I'm trying to do the sewweekly challenge for the third week in the row. This week: St Valentine's day, make something red, or pink, or with flowers.... so I am going for a Colette pattern wrap dress. I don't have any red material so I am going for flowers, I have spent 3 hours tonight making a copy of the pattern and cutting out material, it would have been longer but I had a helper: the mother-in-law is here for the weekend ....

That's the reverse of the material... I needed 5 metres, yes five! I got this for £4 a metre so I am happy, it's quite 50s looking, I am going for a sexy fifties Italian look, I will probably get an Italian granny in her fifties look, check back later in the week to see!
