Off-white embroidered chiffon dress

As the name, the material is embroidered chiffon…. the whole dress is lined with some kind of soft polyester (came with the set). Chose a simple pattern coz the fabric frays very easily n dint want to cut it too many times. Its an A-line dress pattern but with slits from hip down on both sides. The lining is hemmed separately from the slits, the front neck line of lining is boat shaped and it is scalloped. The front neckline of the chiffon was hard work. Had to do it thrice to get it almost right. Had to hand sew also few places. I made a cut-out of the paisley design from the lining at back, held to the lining with little bit of hand sewing.The sleeves are unlined. the leggings/chudidaar are made from the same lining material.

    How are you?

    I just started sewing and taking a class which they only taught how to sew one skirt which is mc call 3341 pattern, which im still sewing, i wanted to know if you have youtube videos on how you sew so I could know how you sew, as i bought a butterick pattern 5817 and wasnt able to do anything on it after cutting it, I love your projects, also is there any patterns that you followed for the off white embroidered dress..
