I made this dress from mouthwateringly beautiful printed silk, using Vogue 2820, an Anna Sui design. The design has quite a few inset panels bordered with piping I made from deep chocolate brown nylon net. The same piping is applied to the sleeve edges and hemline. The print on the silk is an abstract swirl of feathers and leaves in earthy browns, mossy greens and pinky browns which will be perfect for our upcoming autumn here. It has an invisible side zip, but the dress is so loose I think you could get away without it.
