i’ve been making the samples for myself and the photos for you, and i’ve been wearing this dress non-stop since i made it. the fabric is very soft light lovely forest designer surplus italian silk. amazing drape and slight sheen.

i’ve been wearing it loose over a long skirt or leggings or jeans, or tucked into a long skirt. when it gets colder, it will act as a nice slip between your tights and your skirt, plus extra silky warmth :)

raw topstitched barbarian seams. tre cool.

    I just adore this dress…I might end up posting that for everything you put up here so I’d best reign myself in!

    Although I’ve made a promise to myself to not buy any more clothes in the near future, just make them, I’m going to have to add a few Ledthread pieces to my wardrobe – I just love it!

    Trully, trully inspirational – I think the JJ and this were what sparked my lost love of sewing and turned it into ‘why don’t you try turning that pattern into something more like…..this………sketch sketch sketch….!’

    …thank you Ledthread x x X!
