its basically the pattern from “white magic” of chia wenlans book “twinkle sews”. I won’t stopp sewing until I have made everything from it :-) hihi
the garment has many lovely details, like small pleats around the nexkline and pintucks in the center front. additionally there is a smocked back and nice “wings” in the back. the dress is held in place by a ribbon in the neck. the two front side parts are a bit ruffled, that gives the seam a nice texture.
i left away these funny big pockets, wenlan chia initially envisioned. so the result is a clear and futuristic dress, that I love so much :-)
thin wool, satin ribbon, satin bias tape
