The pattern is well designed, I love the instructions for the flounces, they allow a very neat finish. As for the fabric, this blue and black beauty is from Supercut. Marine was so nice as to send it with an order as it was stained (Marine, where was the stain? I was unable to see it!). It’s a beautiful silk, so soft and with great colors. I love how it moves.What are you making for the summer? Tops, dresses, shorts? Let me know.
