I made my mum a sheath dress from an old fabric of hers, a cotton sateen with a fairly wild pattern.
I really like how the dress turned out, and am especially pleased with the lining. The simple design of the dress really shows off the pattern I think, and in a flattering way.
The lining was a light triacetate, which felt good on the skin and was pretty easy to work with.
I’m especially proud of the lining of the back slit, which is actually really easy to do, but looks quite professional (except for a bit of crinkliness in this case).
Anyway, mum was pleased, which is always the most important thing.
