I followed the frayed flower tutorial but folded my fabric in half to get a nicer edge.. so, not frayed at all.
I bought the Burda EASY 9885 pattern which was used in the Get Creative article to make the following fabulous dress:
The dress on the pattern has used a unflattering see-through fabric and buttons which really don't do it justice.. I'm so amazed by the Get Creative article and how if you select the right fabric and make slight alterations, you can turn a dowdy dress pattern into something amazing. I can't wait to have a go at this myself.
