Description

I made a silk dress! It’s the first time I’ve ever sewn with silk georgette. I’m pretty excited about it. I used Vogue 1344. See below for fabric links.

    Oh gosh I dream of making a beauty such as this. Silk is so wonderful. Love all of it and congrats I would imagine it must have been very difficult to sew. But you did it AND you did it beautifully the first time so imagine what is able to come!

      Right?!? Yes, I’m excited to tackle another pattern in silk. It’s not so scary! Thank-you!

    Wow, so beautiful! The color is fantastic and the pleats (?) on the back shoulder are really lovely. And it suits you so well.

    This is gorgeous on you, its my favourite colour. So far i’ve only tackled tops in silk chiffon and would love to do a dress but it is daunting. love yours x

      It’s my favorite color too! I think tops would be harder. This pattern doesn’t even use a zipper! Just an elastic waistband. Thanks for the kind words.

    Very nice dress and great color! I’m glad for you that silk chiffon didn’t scare you off of future projects. It is such a dream fabric to wear-worth all the effort and aggravation to sew :)

      It is SO beautiful and such a pleasure to swish around, but yes, a nightmare to sew! I’ll tackle it again just because the result is so fun to wear.
