In sequinned and embroidered silk chiffon from the Alannah Hill outlet in Melbourne, and using Vogue 1152 again. This second time in making up this pattern I followed the pattern faithfully. Except to add about 5cm in length because I felt like my previous version is on the short side. And I hemmed with a handrolled, handstitched hem, so the dress is technically just a leettle bit longer than intended because of this too. I went with the original styling because I figured that the floppy sheer fabric would droop quite satisfactorily and thus work better for this "loose-fitting" pattern. And it does, too.
Note to self; when the pattern envelope says "loose-fitting", pay attention.
For the piping I used the tiniest scrap of some leftover fabric that my daughter dyed in a shibori method, as part of a school project. And because I didn't have any piping cord handy, I substituted boot shoelace; just as effective, imo.
Because the fabric is er, like, completely sheer and I don't wish to make a spectacle of myself, I am wearing it over the champagne silk petticoat, made here using Burda 8071; and it couldn't be a more perfect fit, cut or colour to work with this dress also. A very useful petticoat, indeed!!
