Satin is a BIG deal for me. Cutting was not a trouble, but sewing was really a mess. I used the wrong needle and the fabric crinkled. Thought I bought suitable needle, it keep crinkling, and when I sewn the gathered skirt, I broke the needle twice..sigh. Although, it took extra time to sew it, I am quite happy with the result.
Actually, I want to make this dress comfy for working at office as well as for casual occasion, but I think it turned out too glamorous. Do you think is it “too much” for office attire? hahaha..yes, of course! :D
