When I showed my friend Pilgrim Lee this dress, unsure of what she thought about it, I blurted out: "I was going for CBGB in the 80's meets Mad Men". And being a fellow creative type, she understood exactly what I was talking about.
This fabric is wonderful. Photos don't do it justice as it is hard to see that it is a jacquard (63% Polyester/37% Rayon) with black and metallic peacock green thread.
I made this dress unlined and used a neck facing, with an invisible zip closure in the back. Unlike most of my dresses, the darts in the front have been sewn as tucks.
