Description

A simple shift dress in a pale grey silk printed with little clouds.

Finally worked up the courage to create something out of this beautiful fabric. #stashbusting

Loosely based on Vogue 8241, combined top and skirt pattern pieces to eliminate waistband, added key-hole neck closure, and added bust darts.

First tiny rolled hem using this tutorial: http://www.burdastyle.com/techniques/easy-roll-hem

Material Notes

Pale grey printed silk from The Fabric Store, Melbourne in 2010.

Lined in lightweight cotton.
