My Paola

Added Oct 17, 2009

Paris, France






I really wanted to make my own Paola dress for which I decided to use this lilac silk I bought on my last trip to China. I had some problems with the pattern as the front and the back of the shoulder did not match but in the end I managed to get around this. I also made the belt that goes with the dress but I don’t wear it as I don’t think it looks nice on me.

Satin piping & Silk

    It’s amazing, I’m surprised that after it being available for so long now there are so few attempts at it! Your version of it totally rules, it’s very boudoir-ish.

      Several days (but I’m kinda slow)… in the beginning I made it a little too tight so I had to unstitch it and sew it again.
