Evening Dress Delhi-Damascus

Added Nov 23, 2009

by badyan

Havlickuv Brod, ...






This dress consists of two pieces. The skirt is actually a half of a saree, arranged directly on the body and provided with snaps that hold it in the required shape. The corsage (the other part of the gown) is based on a pattern from the Burda magazine (do not ask me to look for the number, any corsage pattern will do) and can be worn with trousers, too. It does not have any lining because it was not necessary as the skirt is quite smooth and slippery and the material of the corsage is quite heavy and it holds its shape well.

Material Notes

The saree used for the skirt was bought in India and marked as “silk” but it is definitely not silk, it is probably polyester or some other artificial stuff. The corsage is made of cotton jacquard bought in Damascus. Dear sister, keep bringing fabrics from your travels ;-)

      It is actually not a print, the pattern is woven (jacquard technique). It is FROM Damascus, i.e. from the city :-)
