People should wear more YELLOW

Another dress I made with silk. This is a slightly amended version of the Celeste pattern. Originally I sewed the dress with the black top and a black skirt with white spots attached to it…which looked horribly dull. That’s when I decided to bring some colour in – I am really happy with the result!! Very cheerful.

Material Notes

yellow silk, black satin, black ribbons





Burdastyle for the pattern

my boyfriend – who inspired me to make this second version of the dress

    I read your materials so I believe the black elements are black satin but it hugs you so well it almost looks like jersey. Beautiful styling, wonderful fit and sewing. Thanks for sharing!

    Wow, I didn’t even notice the diamond cut of the waist/skirt section before – the yellow totally highlights it! Love it!

    I couldn’t agree more – I love yellow! Your variation of the Celeste is fantastic! Actually, the best variation I have seen on the site. BTW, do you always dress up when changing light bulbs? :)
