This was made for a friend, the fabric was so pretty that I kept the design simple. The bodice is basic with armhole seams instead of darts as it was a little bulky and easier to mould over the bust. The skirt is box pleated and there’s an invisible zip in the center back. The skirt length came to just under the knee she is quiet tall so it looks longer on my mannequin. It was silk suiting fabric.
