A Different Parfait

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this dress! 
This dress is as soft as acceptance! And as light as gratitude!   
The bodice is made from sueded silk I received from a dear friend! Sueded silk is the MOST AMAZING fabric in the universe!!!!!!!!!!!! 
The skirt part of the dress is a cotton voile sooo cool and silky smooth. 
It is a very different Parfait! I used the Parfait pattern from Colette https://www.colettepatterns.com as a starting point.
I took out a lot in the bust, added bra cups, made thinner straps, and added a lot of fullness in the skirt. 
"Wild in that wilderness, we roam
the distance of our faith;
safe beyond the bounds of what we know."
Wendell Berry
