This is my first go at using a silky fabric and boy is it slippery lol. I got a few end of roll pieces cheap so i looked for a pattern that would suit. I’ve already made the dress of this pattern so i thought i’d give it a try.while its far from.perfect i have to admit to loving it. The black band came about because i cut it to short but i like how it turned out. I’d a day of work and it was lovely and sunny. The town where i live was built around a castle and theres plenty of it left.The grounds are gorgeous so i managed a few photos. The pics are just of the entrance and i’ll get more later.The tropical sewist should like these x
