I purchased this fabric from Tessuti about a year ago. It’s a gorgeous Dolce and Gabbana 100% silk satin from Italy.
I used New Look pattern 6123, I decided to fully line it at this fabric was far too expensive and gorgeous to not line.
I’m really really happy with this dress. It feels beautiful to wear and fits like a glove without being too uncomfortable.
