DIY cut out shoulder silk dress

Ok, lets discuss all this pepto bismol pink which is what I thought when It first came in the mail, but once you feel it and see how it moves all that goes out the window.  I believe being the mom to an almost two year old little girl that’s drawn to bright colors is giving me a new appreciation for the other side of the color wheel.

This washed silk  by Rag & Bone is one that you unfortunately have to be careful in due to it’s ability to capture every stain which is fine unless you have a little person in your life with sticky hands that love to give hugs.

This washed silk like many is easy to sew, irons beautifully and drapes like a dream.  Unfortunately this silk has just sold out, but here are a few that’s just as amazing.

This dress was made using vintage Simplicity 8390 #3 and the sleeves to Butterick B6350 with the following alterations:

-Added 4″to the length of the dress

-Added 9″ to the length of the sleeve

-Added a 2″ wide elastic to the bottom of the sleeve

-Added a 1/4″ wide elastic to the shoulder of the sleeve

-Added 2 75″x8″ pleated ruffle to the hem

    Beautiful Nikki! I love the color and the style!!!! You are so creative and talented. Your look is very classy and sophisticated. Pink seems to be very popular these days. I have a ‘pepto bismol’ pink color in my fabric stash, a wool, perhaps a nice coat for my next project. Your darling daughter is a fashionista just like her Mom!
