Steal Me Sweet Thief - Recital Gown
Added Apr 19, 2010
I made this dress for my daughter’s final university recital concert. She wanted something that would have both a historical and contemporary feel to it, to match the music she was singing. The pattern was from the Butterick Historical collection. It was the first time I worked with silk charmeuse – what a beast! but incredibly gorgeous when finished. The dress was supposed to be cut on the bias, but after buying the fabric my daughter decided she preferred the pattern of the material on the straight grain instead.
Silk charmeuse, with a silk lining.
