This is the first dress I make for the Colette Spring/Summer Palette Challenge and I am pretty happy about it. I wanted to challenge myself with the pattern and use new techniques: pipping inserting and boning for the corset. I can move without fear of the top falling, this is great as I plan on wearing this dress at a wedding and it needs to be confortable enough to eat and dance all night long.
I used Vogue 1174 by designer Cynthia Steffe for the top and my own skirt pattern for a fuller style.
The fabric is a nice satin silk with blue, pink and yellow embroided flowers.
