I got this fabric on my adventure to MOOD in NYC over a year ago and just not got to using it. I love it! Although working with such thing and fragile fabric is difficult, I think I’m finally getting the hang of it. I love this dress though. I debated for a long time as to whether or not I should add sleeves, but I’m glad I did. I love the cuffs I put on them too! There are also two darts under the bust line.
I put a lot of time into creating this garment (hiding seams, serging, etc), however the pattern I made was a little too long in the back. It hangs out a little when I wear it. I’ll probably end up making darts in those spots so it’s not so loose, but other than that I’m happy with it.
