Description

I have used pattern # 1 (vestido estampado) from a Spanish magazine, Patrones 4/2010.
I think draped fabric looks very lovely and therefore I decided to try sewing this evening dress.
I used a lot of time preparing the draped top since I had not tried this before, but in a way I did manage.

    Very beautiful! Draping is always a winner for an evening gown and you really managed to do it very well! You look very womanish and well-dressed!
