Silk chiffon from St Petersburg ♥



I was lucky to find this beautiful silk chiffon when visiting St Petersburg!
I knew that I wanted to make something special, 
and thought a dress like this would be the right choice!

I have used the pattern several times since I like it very much!
I had to use lining for the dress, but I wanted to have the sleeves transparent.



I have used very narrow zig-sag stitches for the hem and then cut the fabric close to the stitches. 

Before sewing the zipper it's a good idea to iron it flat first.

I have uses vlieseline where the zipper is sewn.


To make the zipper correct on both sides, I cut a hake in the zipper so I knew where it's going to end.


The dress without lining.
