outfit and bag for a sewing contest

End of January during one week holidays, I was very busy sewing. I have decided to participate to a sewing contest. The challenge is to make an outfit and acessory with 2 pieces of silk fabric imposed by the organiser. It was not easy to find assorted fabric.
The whole outifi is made with silk, the linen as well. This fabric was extremely difficult to sew and I wanted to give up several times. I have chosen the Dolce Vita model for the dress. It is the third time that I use this pattern.
The bag is made with fabric scraps
On Sunday, I will know it I am the winner of this contest
