Description

Feeling like Elizabeth Taylor in Giant, in between oil pumps.
I made this dress in red silk taffeta, modifying the normal bodice pattern, adding v-neck and a front seam to adjust it better. The skirt is a full circle, quite difficult to make the seam even, if I may add.

Material Notes

silk taffeta, china silk for lining, 50cm zipper

Difficulty

Intermediate

      You actually look like you popped out of an Almodovar’s film, and I love Almodovar!

      Thanks!! I love that fabric, although maybe it wasn’t a good idea for that kind of skirt
