Description

I found this lovely silk in a bazaar in Singapore and couldn’t leave without it…, and it is so delicious to wear. The flounce is made of sheer knit tulle, and it doesn’t fringes so I have cut it without seam edges. Since the silk is such a nice fabric I had to hand stitch around neck, arm holes and hem, but I’m really happy how it turned out :)

Material Notes

Silk and sheer knit tulle.

    Although I don’t like animal print, lately I’m strangely attracted by it, especially when it’s somehow ‘surrealistic’ like red zebras or turquoize leopards! It was nice to see your red zebra while I’m working on my turqoize leopard…. Well done!
