I made this dress back at the start of the year which I wore to mine and Robin’s engagement party in January. I used Vogue pattern #1104 and pretty much copied the fabric choice from the model on the packet; who doesn’t love polka-dots!
I used a beautiful silk georgette from Tessuti for the body of the dress, and a silk crepe-de-chine also from Tessuti for the contrast. The dress is extremely comfortable and has a touch of vintage to it.
There is just nothing quite like wearing silk; it feels so glamorous! It is more fiddly to sew with, but so worth it in the end.
Leopard and snakeskin are the new neutrals.
