ever since setting eyes on this dress (no. 133/05/12) I knew I would make it one day. Used an inexpensive material for my first trial, but a more elegant one is sure to follow.

      thank you schnui ! I am really happy with this one. Although it is quite casual fabric, it can also be glammed up. Wore it once with high heels and jewellery and it looked pretty fancy. But I am dying to do this again in another fabric ! Might even go for velvet, like suggested in mag.

      This dress in velvet would be gorgeous, especially a soft drape stretch velvet.

      yes it really is. I wanted to make it as soon as I saw the picture, but took me a while to get round to it, partly because I couldn’t decide on the fabric. Quite like this one, but definitely going to make another.
      Very much looking forward to your caramel/snakeskin version :-)) xx
