Description

Finally I dared to just go ahead and try draping. Of course I made it hard on myself with an amazing silk and wrapping the skirt part around to the back (side seams would have been easier), but I am fairly happy with this dress. If you’d like to read more about the process (including a mini-tutorial on a Swiss-style hand-rolled hem), please visit my blog Of Dreams and Seams I am very curious to hear what you think about it!

    Wow I love that fabric , such beautiful colours , I like the way you draped it ,though perhaps a longer more flouncier sleeve would have been my choice .
