If I were a size 8, I’d keep this one.
This dress was something I had in mind to do for a while. My client wanted something special for Easter, so I showed her this brocade fabric from my stash. The blue lining was a bonus as it matched the blue in the dress. I love adding a contrasting or unexpected lining colors and prints to my clothing.
The fitting went very well and we decided on an invisible zipper instead of metal, so I’ll install it today to complete the dress.
This is a great dress to make. I love classic looks that stand the test of time and this one certainly will.
