S3503




This pattern has gotten a lot of rave reviews. I did sew view A in a Fauxsoni knit two years ago. I still wear it. I needed, okay wanted, a dress for the girls luncheon yesterday. My neighbour brought this fabric back from Bulgaria last year. I promised her I would do it justice. I chose view E. There was barely enough to work with. I cut the skirt back a bit smaller than the front and used JetSet for the contrast and the lining.
Poor Z! I need to recover her. It's been almost 30 years since we've been together.

Wow, this dress rocks! Thanks for the hint with the candles - I have limited freezer space though and I actually don't mind the dripping that much, but I'll keep it in mind for the future.
