Cameron Park, Ca...
Where do I start with this project? It seems like it took forever to finish. All french seams, the sleeves were a challenge. I’ve never done a sleeve like these. I also made the slip that goes under the dress out of a white cotton. The swiss dot fabric is a little sheer so best to have the slip. The dress drapes lower in the back which gives it a neat look.
I feel like I should wear this while sipping an espresso at cafe in Paris ;-)
The pattern is Vogue DKNY 1160
