Colette Patterns Sewing Handbook – truffle dress. I made this with out the asymmetrical design as the eyelet fabric has lots of texture. I use a rayon light green lining. The modification made was to add lining to the skirt section of the dress. In the original pattern the lining is only from the bodice.
I got the eyelet material on a trip to dress sew in Vancouver. Fun trip . I did make the skirt longer as I can be taller with heels and its more office appropriate. I like this pattern so will make another for the fall. I do recommend this book because it has shown me how to make things for myself. I only wish I could spend more time in my sewing room.
Eyelet cotton fabric for shell. Lining is rayon. Regular zipper this time sewn with invisible zipper method.
