This is from a Vogue pattern by Anne Klein. I used silk brocade “wrong side” out (I did this because I thought that the “right side” would be too shiny and didn’t show the grain of the fabric as much, which I like) and lined it with hot pink lining. I made this dress before in a longer version with metallic linen for more of a day-to-night look. This one I made short since the material is more suitable for a cocktail/party dress.
