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