I bought this shantung silk without actually knowing what I’ll do with it, but I loved the rich chocolate color too much to let it pass. I found the perfect pattern for it in February BWOF (by Tristano Onofri). I ran out of the fabric in the end so that the tie belt is 10 cm too short, but it still looks ok.
