It was a long time ago I cut parts for my second coffee date dress from handmade coloured linen and scratches of silk. I was so excited of this combination. But I was one big disaster when I was switching two pieces using my machine. The fabric have started ripping up. I think because this linen was sparsely woven and the needle I have used firstly was too big. So I have put it into the drawer.
But now when spring has come I want to finish that project. I sure It won’t be the best dress in my wardrobe. The quality of the main fabric isn’t very high. Still it is a funny mix of boho style whit a bit of shining glamour, good for going out with friends.
Below you can see work in progress. As always the hardest part for me was bringing together the bodice with the skirt. You can see on one of the photo my little mistake. I need more exercises.
The dress is almost ready. This time I’ve used size 40, but the dress is still quite baggy. Because of that I haven’t used the zipper. I need to do one little correction. But this will be later, after my holiday. Two weeks of traveling, climbing and great fun! I can’t wait!
