I bought this fabric while I was away travelling in the summer and love it so much I’ve been too scared to use it.. I’m quite a beginner and haven’t made anything with sheer silk like this before. I was concerned that I wouldn’t be able to unpick and redo any mistakes! For that reason I decided to go with a very simple shift dress shape, so less chance of messing up. I later added a gold fringe around the bottom which I’m really pleased with. I really love fringing on dresses – I definitely should have lived in the 1920s and been a flapper.
This was based on a pattern by burda young 7390 but I made it a few inches shorter and more of a straight shift dress shape.
Make something special and practical for your friends and family this holiday season!
