San José, Costa ...
A couple of weeks ago I had this beautiful dream, it was like a black and white movie, and I was wearing a dress just like this one. When I woke up, I run to my desk and drew it, so I wouldn’t forget what it looked like. That same day an invitation arrived to my door, the appointment: a wedding, the dress code: black tie!
I don’t know if it means something or it was just a coincidence, but I rushed to the fabric store and bought this stretch silk satin and got down to work!
I used Burda pattern 101 7/00 as a reference and worked everything else directly on a dress form.
