Half Sun in the Sun:-)

It is my forth item from this wonderful issue and I surely have a secret plan to make some more:-)) Simple but effective dress with flattering V-neck and wide skirt embellishes any woman with its silhouette. Light and bright fabric makes feel very attractive… indeed:-))
So I recommend it to everybody. I changed the skirt from flared to half flared ( we name it “half sun” here) and decreased the neck hole. All my modifications and ideas as for the dress are here.
The ideal accessory for the dresss is these self-made earrings.

    Чудова сукня! Дуже гарна і вдало підібрана тканина! А я все ніяк не зберуся зшити цю модель.

      Дякую! Пошиєш як буде час…, тобі пасуватиме. Я іноді думаю, ну нашию я тих суконь всі і одразу, а потім, що?:-))

    Perfect fabric for such a pretty dress. I love the floaty skirt. Will have to have a look at this edition again and take inspiration from your project.
