Malanka is a Ukranian New Year’s Celebration, on the 13th of January (New Years Eve according to the Julian Calendar). It’s sometimes called old new year’s eve. Every year in Melbourne there’s a couple of balls or parties to celebrate.
This is the dress I wore to the first of the Malanka balls this year. I used a pattern for it but I can’t remember which one… I think it was a Vogue one. The halter neck was a bit awkard & took quite a bit fiddling to get it to fit properly. I’m still not completely happy with it.
For more details please visit my blog, Orchids In May.
Embroidered cotton blend for the skirt, silk for the waistband (I couldn’t believe it either – it almost looks like denim) & silk satin for the halter neck. All from Stitches in Armadale (one of my favourite fabric stores).
