Fabric: Overlay is crinkled silk chiffon from emmaonesock.com. Underlining is crepe back satin. Both underlining and lining are polyester from JoAnn.
Pattern: Vogue 8182 (bodice) and Vogue 1086 (skirt). It was my first attempt to sew a side zipper opening so I was nervous. Luckily, it turned out okay. J

I made this dress few years back. Why am I looking at it now? It is because I am thinking to make another dress out of these patterns. The inspiration for the project is Delia dress by Milly.

The silk charmeuse and china silk are washed and ready in my closet. I can start this project tomorrow if I finish all the homework today. Well, Milly dress is absolutely fabulous motivation to study, isn’t it?!
So, until I come back from Studyland, cheers to you all!
