This slinky black number, although gorgeous to look at, was a nightmare to make. Do not let its simple appearance fool you! It was my first attempt at a bias cut gown and.. it was challenging to say the least. With the fabric being so delicate and slippery, the task seemed near impossible enough to almost give up multiple times!
That said, I LOVE the result and the matte texture of this silk is beautiful. I actually bought the fabric from an amazing little store in Melbourne that somehow gets their hands on off-cuts of fabrics that fashion designer’s didn’t use, and this was one of Donna Karan’s herself. I think that makes this one just a tiny bit more special!
