This is one of my first project from the fabric I bought on our fabric-safari in St Peterburg with my lovely sewing-bee friends :) and for sure I fell in love with this gorgeous fabric! I decided to make an easy dress to make the print to shine :) Since the fabric is transparent I have not made lining for the sleeves. I used a rolled hem for the sleeves, but I had to hand stitched the hem for the dress very carefully.

Material Notes

Silk chiffon and micro satin as lining.
