I really wanted to make my own Paola dress for which I decided to use this lilac silk I bought on my last trip to China. I had some problems with the pattern as the front and the back of the shoulder did not match but in the end I managed to get around this. I also made the belt that goes with the dress but I don’t wear it as I don’t think it looks nice on me.
