Description

I bought this Jacquard Brocade Fabric or Chinese Satin for making cushions for our sofa, but I thought it was nice for a shift dress as well :) I have chosen to add an asymmetric collar like the blouse I made earlier this summer.
I omitted the ties and made the opening at the back because of the zipper.
For the lining I have used satin, but since it wasn’t stretchy I cut it on bias, then it feels better…
This was a perfect dress for Sara :)

    So delicate. And it reminds the looks from 60th. Despite the fabric is bright and shining you look very tender and fragile in this dress. Nice indeed.
