I used two Colette Sewing Handbook patterns – Truffle for the bodice and skirt (which I changed) and Licorice for the sleeves. I had to change the bodice, because I am between A and B cup :)
Only the skirt is lined.
Fabric is some kind of synthetic but the shine reminds silk satin. The dots are velvet. Good thing is that it doesn’t wrikle, bad thing is that it was quite hard to press down the seams and hem.
The lines of Greek architecture inspire this neutral and pastel collection.
