I needed a dress quickly for a school function. Instead of cutting into the silk I have bought for the Susan Khalje Craftsy Course, I made a third toile instead using some lovely teal-green rayon.
It fits, it looks nice-ish; but I don’t think I’ll be using this pattern for the real dress, I just don’t like it enough to use $250 of fabric making it!!! Initially it had sleeves, but they didn’t sit correctly and the dress felt frumpy, so off they came and now I am a very happy chappy!
Very tightly woven teal green rayon, lined in a beautiful moss-green acetate, with silk organza embroidered lace at the bust and waist.
