A dress shirt is one of the most comfortable ones, besides, it is always in fashion so when I saw this one I wanted to try it and that flying or cascading detail just adds some diversity to the design. The item is pretty complex with many details: more pictures and the way of sewing can be seen here.
I surely recommennd this pattern either with any modifications or without them – I like the result a lot:-)
I must admit the issue 03/2015 is really worthy – it is already the forth item from it.. or the fifth..?:-)

Material Notes

Sateen, pretty dense, the type of the fabric made the sewing much easier indeed because never tried to move or run away from the pinns:-)

      Дякую, хоча журнали і розбещують нас простими фасонами – все ж таки іноді варто і попрацювати, щоб хоча б навичок не втратити:-)

      Thank you very much, Liliv, I’m glad at the result because really had some doubts if I wouldn’t get a morning gown at the end… But even my mum said I’d made a good choice of the pattern for this fabric.

    Oh oksana how gorgeous is this. I had a look on your blog and I love your prom photo. You havnt changed (the hair has) and the dress you had on would be wearable now as it’s fabulous. I found your crystal blue necklace when I was looking and it’s stunning x

    More lovely florals in big prints perfectly matched. Good to see worn two different ways too. They look like hydrangeas too.
