Walk in the Shadows

I like to tell about the things doomed to be sewn from the first sight and even more I like it when from buying the issue and making the pattern not too much time passes:-) For example, this dress became my favourite as soon as I opened the magazine, I only wanted to make it wearable for warm time of year. Thus my idea was to shorten the sleeves, instead of the bow I decorated the neck hole with some kind of piping. I also made a seam in the front to provide even flare of the skirt. The zipper was sewed into the side seam but I can put the dress on without it at all.
The dress is very comfortable, light, very feminine… I am ready to wear it all the time :-)
My tips for the sewing are here
The jewellery was made by myself, too.

Material Notes

Batiste of cotton, viscose and something else blend. This “something else” adds some very delicate shining to the fabric.

      Thank you very much! It is a very worthy pattern and a ready dress cannot but look and fit well. The back can require extra trying on.

    Very pretty and flattering especially with the vertical lines in the fabric

      Thank you ! Yes, those lines were not seen in fabric well but in the ready item they play the part :-)
