I had this burgundy chiffon in my storage for years, waiting for it’s time. For some reason, I decided that this is not my colour and the only reason I actually started thinking of using it to make something was to get rid of it! Chiffon is a nightmare to work with and I can frankly say I didn’t enjoy the process, but…. I Love the outcome. The pattern from Burda Style Magazine 2/2008, 119 was perfect! Something to through over a tank top and a pair of jeans for a bit of glamour! The lace trimming in a matching tone adds a bit of old romance to the whole image.
The trousers are made using self-drafted pattern ( see credits)
