I bought the issue because of this dress. And made it in a couple of days; had to shorten the pattern because I’m 166 cm. The gown is well-fitted exept the sleeves but as I wanted them long, I left what I’d got.
It was made for a New Year’s day celebration and hope to have more chances to wear it. It’s really very womanish.
My variant is made of crepe. But the fabric was really a little thick for draping although I’m glad with the result and have no doubts as for my choice.
