Description

Firstly, Thank you Ale for your simplified and lovely pattern. It was very easy to ensemble. My mom gave me this white strecht fabric just last month. I was tried to figured out what am I going to do because it was just one meter. I have to do magic in order to cut the pieces of the Polini Dress. It stuck in my mind since I lay eyes on it. Sleeves couldn’t be in their original lenght but I made them 3/4 lenght.
As well, I have to add a piece of lace on the zoom for enlarging (The fabric wasn’t enough)
I didn’t use a zipper because the fabric is strech, so it was very easy and fast.
I wear it cassually with jeans beneath as a tunic and complimented with a colorful rustic necklace and earrings, and casual high heels sandals.
As well, I wore it in a summer cocktail party accesorised it with bronze high heels pumps and a purse in the same tone. I received compliments, Both outfits were confortable and lovely.
Thank you Alec
