I stitched up this dress to wear to a spring time wedding. I purchased the silk print on a trip to Los Angeles a couple of years ago. To create a softer gauze look I washed and dried the silk before sewing the dress. The dress style is highly influenced off of a long silk dress I saw in Anthropologie last spring. To create the dress style I adapted Simplicity pattern 3887 into a long dress. I wanted to keep the dress pattern simple so the beautiful fabric print could be the main focus of the dress style. The dress pattern is easy to sew, but the very light weight silk was a little tricky to work with. The dress is lined with a stretch knit swim fabric. Its comfortable and easy to wear.
