Havlickuv Brod, ...
This dress consists of two pieces. The skirt is actually a half of a saree, arranged directly on the body and provided with snaps that hold it in the required shape. The corsage (the other part of the gown) is based on a pattern from the Burda magazine (do not ask me to look for the number, any corsage pattern will do) and can be worn with trousers, too. It does not have any lining because it was not necessary as the skirt is quite smooth and slippery and the material of the corsage is quite heavy and it holds its shape well.
The saree used for the skirt was bought in India and marked as “silk” but it is definitely not silk, it is probably polyester or some other artificial stuff. The corsage is made of cotton jacquard bought in Damascus. Dear sister, keep bringing fabrics from your travels ;-)
