This is my second dress using Burda Magazine pattern 6/2011 # 102. I found a remnant of Emanuel Ungaro silk that I loved and there was just enough to make this dress. I did not want to cut this fabric until I had tried this pattern, hence the red linen dress that I made several weeks ago. I did not sew in the side pockets as I didn’t want a bulky look. This dress is cut on the bias and the hem doesn’t really sit properly, even though I hung it for 3 days before hemming. But on the whole, I am really happy with it as it is lovely to wear; is light as a feather and hardly creases and is a dream to wash and iron.
Emanuel Ungaro silk purchased from Gardams Fabrics, Brisbane.
