Description

This dress is my labor of love. I bought this beautiful print silk fabric in Mood Fabric Store in New York and it was the most expensive fabric I’ve ever bought! I used a Butterick Pattern B4849 , which was marked “fast & easy” but this proved to be a challenge both on the neckline, bustline and my fabric choice. I really love the way this turned out and I have enjoyed this dress and have worn it to cocktail parties and professional occasions.

Silk. Silk charmeuse. Interfacing. Zipper. Hook & Eye.
