I try to make myself something special for my birthday every year, and this year I made myself this designer Matthew Williamson sheath dress in a wonderfully supple purple satin, lined with a surprise floral fabric. I had to rush to meet my birthday dinner deadline, but I managed to maintain a high quality throughout, with all the curved facings, inset corners, tricky seam intersections, and mitred walking vent edges!
