The pattern is Simplicity 2281, a Cynthia Rowley Collection pattern, and the fabric is 2 m of 100% silk Solid Crepe de Chine from Mood Fabrics in the color Tango red.
This is the second time i sewed with silk, and I’m happy to say that I’m not afraid of silk anymore! This crepe de chine was easier to work with than the previous silk, it went smoothly under my sewing feet and was surprisingly a lot more stabler that I have imagined. So, no problem at all with the fabrics.
The pattern instructions are quite clear although I didn’t really follow the instructions order, which called for finishing the bodice and lining it first before attaching the skirt. As I wanted to be able to alter the sides later, the side seams were sewed the last.
