Description

My second version of this wonderful pattern. I modified the collar, raised the hemline and swapped out the skirt back pieces for the skirt lining to reduce the “men yelling at you from cars about your booty” effect.

The fabric is a smokey teal cupronnium (linen/rayon blend) by Calvin Klein. I lined the dress in hot pink Bemberg.

I also added bra strap holders which were fiddly to do and not my neatest ever work, but boy do I love having them!

      Thanks Flo :) I followed instructions from this old (60s?) Spadea tips book. Will scan and send you the pages!
