My own pattern.
I bought this gorgeous silk on discount since it was a leftover. It was around 1.20m long (1.4m wide). I fell in love with its color, and I had to make a dress out of it. I had to squeeze the pattern pieces on the fabric, but I managed it!
I used some thin satin for the lining. I loved the print.
I just loove the dress, but I haven’t had much opportunities to wear it, since it’s too formal for work.
This dress was featured in the Feb/March 2012 issue of the Sew News magazine (last pic)
