As material I have used a black wool-crepe with a great fall. Though this also means it is not so easy to tame. It doesn't like to be tailored and pressed into shape. So I took the idea of the jungle girl dress and let the bodice softly fall from one shoulder. The underskirt helps to keep it in shape.
And this is how far I got today. Some finishing work still needs to be done, but I think next weekend my Cindy dress is ready!
