Description

This is self-drafted pattern. The fabric is metallic cotton boucle suiting with very open weave, so I double all dress with interfacing, after that fabric was pretty easy to work with. Dress completely lined.
Also I attached pockets with hand stitching.

Material Notes

Peach Pink metallic cotton boucle suiting, Pongee lining in pink champagne color.

      Thank you so much! But this is just a basic sheath dress, I’m sure you can find one in the magazine . the collar -it’s a piece of fabric cut on bias. And right fabric will do the rest:)
