|This print has great colours true to the image I used.|
This Simplicity 1357 dress is fairly straightforward to make and is perfect for hot, humid Summer days.
You can order Contrado fabric samples as there are 98 to choose from and I relied only on the detailed product descriptions on their website. This fabric is exactly what I wanted to work with.
This Lucent fabric is a "lightweight, shimmering double faced sateen fabric. Made of a satin weave, constructed of woven poly-based straight set filament fibres. This shiny, substantially opaque material is a high lustre fabric which is very light and airy, weighing only 120 gsm."
|Work in progress make with plain rayon fabric added to the side seams|
|This rayon has enough shimmer to match the printed Lucent fabric|
|Happy dancing in the finished dress|
The hem stops just under the dahlia and I can safely wear heels or flat shoes with this dress and it's still balanced.
|Ready to head out for the weekend|
