The fabric - Hitchcock's Birds - Roberto Cavalli, 100% silk purchased from Tessuti (Melbourne) and still available.
Will be making View 'B' but shortening the sleeves and possibly making them bell shaped or even with a small ruffle - yet to be decided.
|Vogue 8486 - Pucci fabric|
About a year ago, I made Jess this dress using this pattern - Pucci silk jersey. I altered the sleeves and made them bell shaped - I think this pattern will still work with the Cavalli fabric.
This is the pattern layout so far, will look stunning when finished. Jess is coming home in a week's time so will post the results. Hopefully all will go to plan.
