|Here are some details about my project:|
|Style||Retro / Vintage, Classic|
What materials did you use? Fashion fabric: Red/black digital print cotton with a subtle sateen finish. Interlining: lightweight cotton Lining: Red poly acetate
What are you most proud of? The fit and the construction - this dress is one of the best dresses I've make. It feels comfortable and luxurious to wear. I took lots of care on getting the fitting right and I followed Susan's Couture Dress approach.
What advice would you give someone starting this project? Do it - the classic fit of this dress will be flattering to anyone and the couture construction makes this dress feel luxurious and very wearable.
