Here is Vera's latest dress without the sleeves. I love this fabric. Just yesterday, after sewing the bulk of the dress, I got a copy of Claire Schaeffer's book, Sew Any Fabric and in that book she talks about how hard it is to sew microfibre. I did not find that at all, in fact before I read the book I was trawling the internet looking for more microfibre because it was such a dream to work with. Here's a close up of the bodice, although my shitty photography makes it hard to see how nicely the folds sit.
I hope to add the sleeves tonight and finish the handstitching. It should look pretty good with the jacket from the JCC and new (from the opshop) pair of tan boots I bought today.
