|~ sewn from slinky, sheer, mesh knit ~|
It was the devil incarnate, I tell ya. The pattern I used was relatively simple, the fabric, however, was decidedly not. Every inch was roundly cursed, repeatedly. and then some. Just sayin'.

It was like sewing on semi-liquified jello. Anyway, the back hem has elastic and the front has folds and tucks. There are no shoulder seams, just 2 seams down the center front and back. The fabric just pours down and over you like a liquid jello too. 2 holes are cut in the middle of the fabric for the sleeves to attach to.
|nice drape job, huh?|
I made a separate cowl because the one attached to the dress was just too skimpy and couldn't hold its own to all the hem action. I think the beefier one works better...
|here you can see how sheer it is|
Which reminds me, I made a slip to wear with it You can see it, and the pattern for the dress on my Clothes for Fall page. I'm also going to slip on over to Rhonda's Me Made Monday while I'm at it. Come on and check out what the sewistas have going on. Oooo and Sheila's Shoe Shine, if I'm not to late...
