I got a bit over-ambitious a while ago and decided that draping was a great thing for a fairly novice stitcher to experiment with. After several partial remakes, I’ve finally made this dress wearable (it became a contest of wills, by the end). There are so many niggles and cover-ups here (hence the sequins), but I think it’s worked rather nicely in the end. I’m quite tempted to remake it again. Third time lucky, after all. And although the mistakes are mostly hidden, I know they’re there…
A pale green georgette I picked up at a bargain price (hence allowing for so many remakes!), with a darker green lining, and green satin in the middle to give the bodice added opacity.
