My sewing shop was having a sale on satin and so I began thinking what i could make in satin.. Then I realised I’d bought this pattern and never made it, and I also had a friends 21st coming up! I finished it just in time and am quite happy with it. I would like to make a more casual one, but only when summer is closer.
I’d always wondered if red-heads could wear red.. Nicole Kidman in Moulin Rouge pulled it off and the cheap satin encouraged me to give it a go.
Satin, with stretch-cotton sateen lining.
I need to add invisible snaps, which is why the dress isn’t properly aligned for the photos.
