Description

Since we were going on holiday, I decided not to participate in this competition.., but all of a sudden I found this lovely stretch satin in a lokal shop called El Kilo and couldn’t resist buying fabric.. The fabric looks nice on the wrong side as well, so I decided to use both sides for the front part. The pattern is easy to download from the internet, and there I were – fighting with my holiday sewing machine! It wasn’t the easiest fabric I chose, so I had to struggle with hand sewing and ironing very much to make it looks nice. I got these red shoes from my loving husband who took the pics when I finished my dress :)

    This IS the winner Ellen! I love the fabric choice (worth the challenge of it :)) the fact that it’s 2 tone makes it even more interesting. And, how lovely that you got the shoes from your hubby :) perfect touch of color.
