I've started on a dress for my sister to wear to a wedding in the summer, its a very simple sleeveless bodice, 3/4 circle skirt combination. I had this amazing blue silk in my cupboard which was perfect for it but its so thin, so it all has to be mounted on cotton first.
The pattern was from a slightly adjusted basic block, I'm always amazed when they fit, it just looks too simple! But it did fit, and so far so good with the silk, though it feels so fragile I'm almost scared to hold it. Hopefully it will feel more sturdy when the lining is in.
