Seam Detail Dress sewing pattern review
Seam Detail Dress - Jill, Austria

The seam detail dress with/without scarf:

I was looking around some shops in Vienna and came across a lovely summer dress in black and white but the problem was it cost €269 which I didn’t want to pay! So a trip to the fabric shop was called for where I found a length of slightly gaudy fabric in silver and black with black sequins on it hiding in a dark corner! I think it had been forgotten because there was no description or washing instructions attached but when I looked at the reverse side, I loved it and thought it was worth the risk so this is what you see here. The fabric was 145 cms wide and cost €30 per meter so for almost the same effect as the shop dress, this cost me a total of €70 including the lining. I haven’t counted the cost of the pattern as I have used it so many times to different effect that the cost gets reduced each time.
