The first garment I made with my new sewing machine (which I got as a present for christmas 2009)!
It is Burda 508C, made from dark blue dupioni silk, and is very comfortable, too, which makes it an ideal party dress – perfect for eating and dancing! :)

    Adorable! Can you post a link to the pattern? I did a search but couldn’t find it.

      Thanks! I put the map there for better travel planning, when I went to Japan last spring :)

    Very cute! I especially like the color, it looks great against your skintone and your hair. Good choice! :)
