Johannesburg, So...






Purple dress with black facing on the outside,oh and a green 1 too#hide.Lined the dress with black on the inside then made a separate facing on the outside.Had to make it in different colours as i love it so much,again my opening is a hook and eye,always lazy to insert a zipper unless i really have to.It was very wasy to make.

Material Notes

1m colour fabric and scrap pieces of fabric for facing,linng and interfacing.

    I love your dresses, both purple and green have great colors! I also like the cut for the colorblock, it’s very flattering. I am lazy about zippers too:)
