This fabulous silk fabric lies beautifully against the body in this cowl design. I don’t recall planning to have the paisley print so well centred at the front, but maybe I was thinking a little too much.
This dress is a breeze to sew, but I did end up with ‘popping’ facings. Every time I moved, there they were, waving at the people behind me…again. A lady even tucked them in for me at one point. I hand sewed the hem as I wanted to avoid any distortion of this beautiful fabric. I made an evening jacket lined in the same fabric but will share that with you another time.
