There was a reason for a new dress: I got an invitation to a piano concert.
Typical every woman’s problem – there was nothing to wear. So I had to quickly sew something nice. The fabric I already had. The pattern had to wait for one year. I’ve wanted this dress since I saw it first.
The most beautiful version I’ve seen, was in white / champagne color.
My color is indigo blue.
The dress I have sewn very quickly, practically in one day. Most of the time I design with the transmission lines spent.
I made the sleeves longer than the original.
Original Pattern – Butterick 5559.
