AHHHH! Spring! in La Sylphide Dress!
This is a pattern by Paper Cut Patterns http://papercutpatterns.com/
Oh My Goodness! This luxurious turquoise silk that my sister brought back from China for me is to die for!!!!! It feels like heaven on my skin and has the perfect drape! It is also thick enough that it is not see through. A lot of silk is see through and that drives me crazy because who wants a lining under a fabric that you want to feel! So this fabric is perfect!
I used a silk chiffon for the bow tie and sleeve trim. I have never worn anything with a bow tie collar so I am not sure how I will like that but right now I am loving it. I had to make the regular changes to the pattern like a small bust adjustment, wider sleeve and sleeve hole.
Really I did not to too much to the pattern!
It is heaven!
"Last Night, as I was sleeping,
I dreamt-Marvellous error!-
that the spring was breaking
out in my heart
I said: Along which secret aqueduct,
Oh water, are you coming to me,
water of a new life
that I have never drunk?"
