I’m glad with the result because the pattern is really pretty universal: it’s good both for work with a crocheted collar ( the pattern is here http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/fresco-lino-collar-version-a) and for evening with the stole which looks like made from faux fur but I just knitted it.
Some piece of advice. I would recommend at first to join the front and back skirt’s yokes separately with their main parts and only then sew the side seams of the skirt because in this case it won’t be troublesome to get neccessary fitting for the hips. Even on the picture in the magazine it’s seen that side seams as if “inflow” on the main part of the skirt and in this way attract too much attention to the hips ( some of us would prefer avoiding it:-)).
My fabric is very good for such a project: it’s some kind of stretching viscose and p/e blend. Not thin, not wrinkling and well-draping, soft and pleasant to the body. In the store it even had a proper name “Amsterdam” although I have no idea what is the connection but it seemed to be funny to use it for the dress’ name:-))
Viscose for the lining.
