Sf Bay Area, Cal...
A simple sheath dress that would look much better in neutrals (as a basic work dress) or floral cotton (as a summer dress). Instead, the magenta silk-cotton blend makes it look like a fail bridesmaid dress.
It’s super easy to make, though. Burda magazine Feb-2009, dress 124A (I don’t believe this pattern is available for sale on BurdaStyle, as of the posting of this project).
