New York, New Yo...
this dress will forever be my italian friend. is this brocade actually from italy? i don’t know. but mood has dubbed it “italian night out”, so there you have it.
the fabric was scrumptious to work with. so soft on the reverse, it didn’t need a lining. as far as the pattern turned out, there’s a flaw or two, but i still love it. something’s going on with that back waist. i don’t know if it’s a pattern problem or an oona problem. could be a whiskey problem.
