I made the Scirocco Dress from Figgy's, which she chose because of the flouncy tiers and open twist back.
She is pretty happy with it. We layered the fabrics she chose and included some optional details, like the trim either side of the central pleat.
|Pretty neat, if I do say so myself...|
The twist back is interesting. We added a contrast fabric to line it with - so there are peaks of pale green at the twist and when she moves. The construction was fairly straightforward, but if you do want to line with a contrast you will have to plan to do so before you cut your pieces out, as the pattern expects you to line and outer in the same fabric.
She was very pleased with herself and saved it to wear on the special evenings out in Greece - so it's definitely a winner!
Ciao for now!
