In a movie I had seen an actress with such a dress and I loved it immediately. The teacher of our sewing class made the pattern for me and I went out to buy silk… I got a soft and really nice black silk fabric with which the whole anger started ;) The fabric was extremely slippery and difficult to cut, sew, handle that I started to hate this project. When I was done I wasn’t sure about the result, but I wore it anyway and got a lot of compliments for it.
The pattern was easy but the fabric difficult to handle.
Dress up outerwear with deep shawl collars and sew up a lovely fitted dress with a flounced hemline.
