A friend left me a bunch of fabrics left over from a film wardrobe. This dress was inspired by a Cybele design from my magazine clippings. After I washed the material it softened a lot. The pattern was adapted from a Simplicity pattern (#3835). The button is from my vintage market collection. The dress was a bit longer before, and I shortened it later, now I think I actually should have left it at the length it was.
I actually don’t know what this material is called. Does anyone know?
