It was too cold to wear it without a cardigan, though.
I have to say that I'm not completely happy with the dress. I'm not sure if a dress with small straps and no sleeves is a flattering style on me, and I feel kind of naked in it. I do love the fabric, but it feels a bit too bright and colorful (a friend told me that this is just because autumn arrives, and that I will love the colorful dress next spring). But the worst is that it doesn't fit right in the bodice, and I didn't know how to solve this fitting problem.
I set in a handpicked zipper at the center back,
and I lined the bodice with cotton voile. The bodice is also underlined with silk organza.
For the shoulder straps, I used the same bias taping as for the "piping", but I inserted silk organza straps to keep them from stretching out.
Well, I will see how I like the dress next spring, for the moment it is too cold to wear it, anyway!
And now I'm off to start, a bit late, with my vestido rojo. I already traced the pattern!
