The third and final dress I drafted & sewed for my 'honeymoon trousseau'. I used a thick white cotton that had a tiny bit of stretch and little airy pinholes. I purposely didn't line the skirt because I wanted to keep it light - it was sweltering! This meant that the skirt was also slightly see-through but hey, worn with the right undergarments why not? And, if Dolce and Gabbana can do it then...when in Italy...

Wonderfull dress. I wish I had sutch skills to draw a pattern myself.ReplyDelete
Thank you Beth for the nice compliment! If you do give patternmaking a try, this one is very close to a basic block, the only major change is to the neckline. Thanks again!Delete
