I made this dress in a day following the pattern published in Burda style magazine, November issue. It is a quite straight forward pattern, however the fabric I used is a very thin, weightless lame which I had to line up completely with a thick , heavier lining in oatmeal, similar to that used for curtains.
Due to its shine, I will call this dress my “tin foil” dress!
I wore this dress at the local Christmas faire hoping to inspire people to sparkle!
Due to the shine of the fabric, I kept the accessories to a minimum!
