My first wearable clothing. I tried to do a blouse from burda magazine but chose wrong fabric. But I’m pretty happy with my marie result although I had some problems with it → material I used is really weird – it’s stiff but also transparent so I had to sew a lining (it was terrible since I had no pattern for that).
I decided to do different pleats in front (to cover enlarged belly after large feast;)) and in the back(to make my bottom look better;)).
Colour is deeper than in photo.
I have no idea what kind of material it is. I’m sure it’s made of natural fibres because of the way it burns but I cannot classify it. It reminds me of blotting paper;)
Lining is made of viscose.
