Melbourne, Austr...






This dress was made using Simplicity 2253 and lots of silk dupion and interfacing. I liked the criss crossing of the seam lines and the shoulder feature.

A very appropriate dress for painting the town.

    Fabulous! This fits you so beautifully and is simply stunning. Use it with caution, though, I foresee traffic jams.

      That’s for sure. The red dress would clash with my blue skin at the moment it’s so freaking cold!
