This dress is very, very close to my heart. This pattern, heavily inspired by the 1950's, it is the first dress pattern I really mastered when I started selling my clothing. Believe it or not, this is a pattern I can make in around three hours; that's whats so great about sewing, with a simple pattern and awesome fabric, a going out ready dress can be but a few hours away. I love the mix of polka dots and the juxtaposition of the shine factor of the natural luster of silk and the silver painted polka dots. As a designer I think having a niche is very important; I like to think that cocktail wear is mine. Print mixing too.
