Look of the Day. Sunset Stripe

Happy Friday, friends!
I celebrate the end of a work week with another completed Fabric Project and my very own inspired Elizabeth and James dress
Remember I posted about Fabric Project "Sunset Stripe"??
My day has started with a lovely walk around lush greenery of my garden and I dressed up for a night out in the capital. 
 The project was somewhat challenging as the stretch jersey can be tough to work with, and sewing at times drove me crazy as I was afraid to overstretch the fabric. I'm so relieved the end result turned out close to my expectations. My favorite part of the dress is the draped chiffon piece attached on the side, which makes me feel like a fire-bird with its fluidity and brightness.
Hope you enjoyed this project, and stay tuned for more!

Oh my goodness un, feeling you HARD on the jersey. Like silks I have a tendency to pull in it and oh my goodness! Does it wreck havoc on how the garment sits. Blck. Looks like you've sewn your one very well though hun and I couldnt help but smile when I saw all those bright colours hehe. This is simply wonderful ^^
