One Thursday morning, I realized I had nothing to wear for an event two days later. At that time, I had available what was in a suitcase. So off to some local fabric stores for me! I perused a pattern book for ideas, and based this off of a vintage Butterick.
I used a teal and bronze shot silk shantung. This results in the color changing depending on the angle. Shot fabric is awesome. I also built in a navy blue petticoat.
The raised waistband is decorated with a pretty little button.
