For Day 2 of the challenge I went back to my 2444 roots with the first dress I ever made from this pattern! This poodle print fabric was something I found in my local haberdasher when I first started dressmaking. I worked on this dress for months with the help of my ever-patient sewing tutor, as I'd decided to improve my dressmaking skills as part of my Queen's Guide award. I haven't worn this dress a lot lately but I should.
Until I decided to do this challenge, it had been a while since I'd last made any 2444 dresses. I have to admit that coming back to it reminded me how much I love this pattern. The flexibility with things like the collar, a waist tie, which I used to always make but haven't for a while now, and the different sleeve lengths is one of the reasons I keep going back to that pattern, I think.
