An autumn day in Spring
This dress was also one of my beginning projects that started with me buying fabric that I really liked and not knowing what to do with it. It is one of those learning projects. Its a mock brocade, and this was the result: very simple, not really fitted but giving a light summery feel without the weight of real brocade (I absolutely love real brocades as much of a pain they are to work with. Such a rich feel!) Ive worn this dress several times, to a wedding, to open dances, to semi-formal parties, on a nice summer date. My favorite is to pair it with red heels and some small red jewelry. Gold goes great too though.
