A short update from the sewing table... I have found this amazing silk fabric and started to work on another dress idea. I have some really great vintage patterns and created a dress out of two different patterns.
The first pattern is a dress in 50's style, which I have adapted into a skirt, the second one is a blouse from the 40's. I have called the dress-to-be Ornella, after one of my favorite Italian actresses from my childhood.
I have the first pictures of the sample dress just taken. The lower part of the dress will be made of the printed silk and the upper part gets the plum colored chiffon.
It has been a lot of work for a weekend, but I can't wait to start with the real material.
