Lilac Party Dress

So after finishing the Bernina 3 Series Party dress I can’t stop making party dresses. Also, I’m currently obsessed with these yo-yos.

The bodice is constructed out of purple linen and lined with silky gray polyester. It is decorated with yo-yos made out of linen and dupioni silk. The waist band and full skirt are constructed out of stripped, sheer polyester and has a bit of sparkle to it. The skirt sits are the true waist and is lined with the same gray polyester as the bodice. This dress has an invisible zipper on the side.

    Thanks all. I am slowly working on my yo-yo recovery… ok, maybe I’ll use them on one more dress :)

    This really is a lovely dress. I am not usually attracted to purple – but this is beautiful, and the contrast skirt is fab. I have only recently discovered yo-yos myself – I really like the way yours have a “gap” in the middle, which (after trying to look really closely!) I think you put your silk inside. Is this right? This is a lovely idea. On a completely unrelated note – I I too live with a husband and three chickens. No baby though! You sound as though you have had a very interesting and creative life. xxx
