Description

I work on this ambitious project, I used neon yellow velvet fabric and this cupro lining from Joel & Son Fabric online store. My Vogue size is somewhere between a size 10 and 12 for the skirt and an 8 for the top. Working with this particular pattern was quite challenging due to numerous markings on the pattern. The dress was quite labour intensive, but I’ve learnt a lot thought it.

    Рота не роззявиш поки шиєш, складна робота. Але результат вартий зусиль… А вже капелюшок, хоч і з 1001 діркою, а хоч і з новою вуаллю, то взагалі… мрія:-)

      Так отаке буває;) Дуже дякую, Оксано. В цiй сукнi прямо по-iншому себе вiдчуваю. На жаль, немає багато нагод для того, щоб ii носити :(

      У мене теж таких нагод буває все менше і менше. Але дуже подобається мудра фраза з пісні: “Вы полагаете, всё это будет носиться?
      - Я полагаю, что всё это следует шить!” Добре, що її зміст дійшов до мене доволі рано:-)

    This is just stunning Thewallina! I love the colour, and the dress itself is amazing – well worth all that effort (and what a great idea to use the horse hair braid to help keep the top in place).

      The fabric was quite challenging to work with, but if you don’t try you never learn!

    I’m glad you stuck to it!~ its a beautiful accomplishment! Did you make the fascinator too or is vintage? Very pretty style.

      The head piece is vintage and it’s old netting has multiple holes, so I did replace the veiling.

      Thank you! Before, I was under impression that yellow would make me look sick, but it did not! More yellow garments to come. . .
