The idea for this lovely frock came about when I was looking through all of my extra fabric and discovered some crème satin I had aquired in grade school. It is very shiny and silky feeling and there was no question that I must turn it into a sweet summer dress. I decided to design a simple balloon dress and jazz it up with an assymetrical cut and gushing rossettes! I added some toffee colored fabric in the bobel detailing for a splash of contrast. I wore this dress for an Easter brunch at the Banff Springs Hotel and it was a great event for another creation!
Crème satin material, scrap toffee satin material, interfacing, elastic, and thread.
