1 / 62817

This is a super special project which I have invested a lot of time and love into and I could not be more pleased with how well it has turned out…especially the fit which took a whole day of muslins! I used the bodice from B5814 which is one of Gertie’s patterns for Butterick, drafted a half circle skirt and used some amazing 4 ply silk from Mood Fabrics which moves so beautifully. The bodice is boned, lined and underlined with silk organza to give it some structure. Full (and somewhat lenghty) construction details can be found on my blog here https://chainstitcher.blogspot.co.uk/2017/02/kelly-green-silk-occasion-dress.html
