The pattern I used is the Celestina dress, but I changed the sleeves and made it out of a two side jersey fabric – the silver belt is the back side. I omitted the zipper and the bow at the back. I think I made the neck line larger too. Maybe a bit too large… Somehow I managed to wash it wrong this week – so it shrunk (shrinking jersey is weird indeed). I guess you can call it a tunic now… I should warn you that I found the waist a bit higher as my waist in the pattern too. Next time if I use this pattern I will definitely lengthen the bodice.
Jersey of a mysterious shrinking blend – it also has the surprising quality to turn transparent when photographed with flash.
