This is my version of the Azalea – I made it months ago, but still haven’t gotten around to wearing it…
It’s some kind of sheer polyester, and is lined with blue georgette – which peeks out the bottom. The black is just cotton. It was pretty cheap to make – both fabrics were $2m!
The fabrics were kind of hard to sew as a starter dress, and the hem was really hard to do evenly as well.
Blocks fabric – polyester $2m, Blue – georgetter $2m, and black cotton $4m all from Brunswick Fabrics.
Burdastyle, and my grandma for helping me with the slippery georgette (it kept slipping, and getting caught).
Sip cocktails by the fire in faux fur, patterned silks, and more luxurious fabrics.
