Pattern: Vogue 8486
Fabric: Hitchcock's birds still available at Tessuti Fabrics
This fabric is really beautiful 100% silk - delicate but worth it. I would probably choose another pattern, if I were making this again. Added a zip at centre back (this pattern has no zips as the fabric should have been a stretch) and the pleats on the front bodice would sit better if it were a stretch fabric, but overall, I'm pleased that it did turn out.
Note to self: Fabric suggestions - there for a reason.
Oops - no shoes! We're in a hurry to take the pics.
