I was given this gorgeous acid green chevron-weave wool fabric two years ago while working at the St. Louis Opera and it was perfect for the jumper dress I’d been planning to make for so long.
I modified the pattern for a cocktail dress that I have, removing the bodice, shortening the hem a bit and adding straps and buttons. Also added flattering ruching at the SF seams.
