In spring this year I wanted to buy a new summer dress but I could not find a suitable one, I’m too small and too fat (1,58m – size 44).
I remembered that there was a nice peace of thin slippy fabric in my fabric-box and a pattern, both suit perfectly together. So I sewed it, but I will never more sew with such a slippy fabric!
I had to make a lining and I chose a green golden lining fabric from my fabric-box, but I should have taken a white one, the colours would be brighter then.
Nevertheless – I love that dress, it’s a light dress for hot summer days.
