A lady came to me with some lovely but bright lime green silk and a dress pattern and said ‘make this!’ so I did! I added a black silk belt for contrast. There was even enough left to make her a second dress which I will also upload. The pattern is Simplicity 2444. I actually re-did the hem after I took these pictures. I’d originally bag-lined it but couldn’t get it to sit straight so I undid it and then re-hemmed the dress and lining separately with rolled hems. It looks much better.
Trousers, blazers, and blouses in cool neutrals have model-off-duty style.
