Yesterday was the first day with sun shine since week full of rain. It was really warm and windless… Therefore I used the time and made finally the photos of this summer dress.
The fabric is cotton-silk liberty and the lining is Venezia.
It is done with a grosgrain ribbon waiststay principle of the 50s.
The petticoat is made separately and is not attracted inventory of the dress. I did the hem with elastic lace by hand, la haute couture.
