itś one of wenlan chia’s crations in her book Twinkle sews. the skirt is made in the balloon technique while the upper part has a sophisticated way to be bead. between the loops the band is knotted to imitate little diamonds on a necklace.
its a funny dress although its rather bulky with the balloon. I had the main difficulties with reading the instructions in specific sewing english :-) i don’t know yet if the dress is really wearable….
the fabric is somehow embroidered wool . for the lining I used dark blue cotton.
