Description

As soon as I saw this faux fur I fell in love with it and I knew I needed a fluffy jacket to add to my wardrobe, construction was pretty easy but I had a few problems with the lining as it kept gathering but after a few goes I finally managed to attach it.
The dress started out as the Burda challenge but I ran out of time because I made a muslin (first time draping on my dress form) then I started to sew it in a chiffon faux leather material… That didn’t go well, I’m in the process of transforming it into a top. So I ran to the fabric shop and found this scuba material, and managed to get my dress done for new year.. I will make this pattern again in a different material as I am really proud of my first attempt of changing a pattern.
I got the inspiration from a givenchey dress I saw on the web.

      Happy new year Maria, I plan to make the dress again but in a lighter material the neoprene was definitely an experience to sew with.
