The Dress

So … this post is finally hapening.

I finished making this dress before the semester ended, but in the haste with which I had to move, I never got around to posting pictures of it.

There you go!

The fabric is silk dupioni, but I washed it (the dress was originally intended for swing dancing) so that I could throw it in the machine after wearing it. The color, obviously, is this gorgeous emerald.

The pattern is from 1956, and absolutely stunning. You can find it at Vogue Patterns (Vintage line) – I definitely suggest perusing their selection.

More later.
