Inspired by Erin McKean’s obsession with duros on A Dress a Day, I decided I NEEDED to make a duro of my own! I used New Look 6615. It was straightforward, but be careful not to let the neckline stretch while sewing, since it is cut on the bias…otherwise, you’ll have a super low-cut and slightly gaping neckline. There’s no zipper, so the shape is created by tying the sash in back. Making the covered buttons was my favourite part.
I used a pretty printed silk that a friend had brought me from Japan. The red borders and waistband are duppioni.
