A very last minute sew.
Zara, originally, had purchased a dress for her formal.
It was cute but she decided it would be more suitable for clubbing rather then an elegant evening out.
She knew what she wanted, a wrap-around slip dress with a very plunging 'V' with ultra thin shoe string straps.
After a peruse of Lekala she found just the dress Lekala #5194.
Custom fit, to her measurements.
I loved the flounce but Zara, not so much, so we left it off.
The fabric is silk satin, from our Melbourne shopping trip $8/m
This dress is absolutely to die for!
It is exactly what I had in mind and more. It's sexy but not skanky. The fabric is so, so stunning, it has such a lush look and feel to it.
Luckily I am part of the itty bitty titty community so all I need to wear it is some satin nipple covers.
I really, really love this pattern. I plan to have a white linen one with the long skirt and a black one and a gingham version with a shorter hem.
Thank you so much Mum!!
Lekala has saved us, again.
It is so nice to be able to sew something up, without a muslin and know it is going to be pretty jolly close to perfect.
The silk satin was a challenging sew but the drape is divine.
It truly is as soft as cobwebs.
Zara looked so beautiful.
