Description

I used the maxi dress pattern by Ralph Pink. The pattern is very beautifully drafted: bust darts and four back darts for the shaping, the maxi skirt with the slit in front and the intriguing cut out on the back.

I had some troubles sewing this fabric, especially stitching the cutout and the neckline.The latter has stretched a little bit even though I used the walking foot and tried to be very careful with not pull the fabric. But I will continue sewing with knits to improve my techniques!

    Це і справді витвір мистецтва – всі переваги тканини використані на повну, а розташування купону – оригінальне і незвичне – надае сукні вишуканості та унікальності:-) Very beautiful:-)

    What a great dress! I love the fabric…(and you are new person with different colour and hairstyle, reminding me of Annie Lennox… it looks great)
