Oh my goodness duchess satin! My new favourite fabric, well for this week any way. One of my sewing friends found this fabric recently and the moment I saw it I had instant fabric envy. Two days later me and my carta di credito paid a visit to the fabric store and made a copy-cat purchase.
I love the way this fabric sits. It’s like there are little people inside trying to bust out; it’s so heavy and bouncy. When I take the dress off it sits up like there’s still someone inside it. Amazing! (and yes, maybe a little bit creepy).
The colour is so vibrant, and it makes me feel a bit ‘mad-men.’ I had a bit of fun getting silly with the photos for this dress.
