Description

We were invited to a chinese themed party and while shopping for a dress in Paris’s Chinatown, I noticed at least 5 other people shopping for the exact same party. So I decided to make my dress…. 3 days before the party…
here’s the model from the magazine :

    Well Thank you! You should try it. It is a nice dress, quick to assemble. I wore it several times since. And the skirt’s pattern, with a few adjustments, has become a favorite. It fits really well.

    this is so pretty! I love the different fabric combo, they complement each other so well. And this looks great on you. I might have to try this pattern.
