I made this dress in about a week. right before leaving to Peru for a cousin’s wedding. I was in a sewing slow period for me and I just decided to go for it. Originally I just thought of doing a simple circle skirt with a nice blouse. But I choose a pattern and got to it. I used McCall’s 5972 View A.
I have a huge stash of silk fabric my mother bought me in Qatar. This red and black one is from China. I lined it with a cheap bed sheet. The pattern didn’t call for a lining in the skirt area but I lined it anyway. This silk was really staticy.
