Flowery cocktail dress with matching scarf and bag.
I bought these fabrics in an Asian shop in Manchester. They sell the fabrics in groups of threes for their traditional costumes. There was 2.5m of the flowery fabric, 2.5m of the blue fabric and the fabric for the sacrf which has gor exactly the same pattern as the flowery silk but it’s voile.
The belt, the bag and the bodice lining are made with the blue fabric. The bag is lined with the flowery fabric.
