Sewist: Ginger

Project: Dress
Fabric: Nannette Lepore silk chiffon, crinkle silk chiffon, mesh with metallic
Lining: Mesh
Closures: None
Pattern: Burda 6866
Notes: One look at these beautiful fabric choices and we know the sewist is Ginger, a long time member of the AAF family and lover of unusual fabrics!. This very elegant mixed print ensemble features a long sleeveless print silk chiffon underdress joined at the neckline and armholes with another sleeveless dress (think lining) made of a subtle metallic mesh. The translucent polkadot overdress is made from a crinkled silk chiffon, has 3/4 length sleeves, a bias banded neckline, and all hems are serged with a narrow hem. This dress was for a special occasion and Ginger definitely was a star in these sophisticated pieces.
