Lady in bordeaux

Duesseldorf, Ger...






This dress I sewed for my girlfriend again.
The fabric was difficult to process.
I guess it’s a slinky. In the back I made the pattern form-fitting.

    great work! i love this pattern. making it more fitting in the back was a good idea. i usually have to do that too, otherwise everything gapes.

    It’s perfect! I think you did an amazing job using the jersey material. Where can I find the pattern?

      Thank you!
      This fabric is heavy jersey too!
      I guess it is a slinky.
      BUT…I recommend only non-elastic materials for the model!!!! my opinion after the work.
