La Verne, Califo...
Well I’m not sure how I got into such a challenge for my third project. With such delicate materials including a lining, working with stripes, and first time inserting a zipper, I had some moments of frustration. I lengthened the pattern to be a dress, and left off the long sleeves. So, it’s finally done and although it’s a little snug around the bust, I think it turned out okay.
Silver and black delicate stretch knit,
black polyester lining,
20" black zipper
