Description

This is Dress E from Stylish Dress Book 2. The pattern calls for bias strips to be used at the neck but as my fabric was quite heavy and I wanted to use a fairly wide ribbon I made facing pieces instead. That’s the only change I made.

Material Notes

Heavyish fabric claiming to be 100% silk. It does have a silk-like sheen and was really tough to cut so maybe it really is silk! I bought it pretty cheap from my favourite market stall. It’s dark navy with a fine cream check.

    Beautiful dress!! The facing looks so much nicer than the bias strip. Love the colours and fabric.
