An Evening Wedding in June
My niece is getting married in June and I need a dress. I love this Simplicity Pattern, particularly View A. I think the slightly draped V-neck with the 3/4 sleeve variation is flattering and in the right fabric would be a good looking but simple, comfortable dress. The important question is what fabric? I'm thinking either charmeuse or dupioni -- which I would line, of course. If the thinness of the models doesn't create a misleading image of the skirt, there is enough fullness for this to be more comfortable for sitting. I'll do a muslin first before cutting into expensive cloth.
