Brocade Dress

Posted by Carina Thavelin

One of my favorite things when I travel is to visit fabric stores. It is always interesting to see what kind of assortment there is and the trends in fabrics. Recently I was in Orlando, Florida and came back with this beautiful brocade fabric in grey and gold.

It has a lovely vintage touch to it so I wanted to create a dress with that feeling. I found this pattern on and it was perfect. I just shortened the sleeves a bit and made a slight change to the neckline.

I think it turned out great!

Have fun sewing!

Could you please let me know which pattern this is. There are too many on their website to easily locate it.

Really lovely dress and the photo is so cool with the contrast of that old house.
