Inspired by the film “The Dressmaker” (and the wonderful novel by Rosalie Ham) I loved making this stunning 100% red silk dupion dress. It’s just waiting for a party, a wedding or a big event. The dress is fully lined in a polyester fabric. It is fitted through the bodice with a removable section behind the gorgeous wide collar, should you prefer to wear a lacy camisole under it. The skirt has narrow pleats throughout, which fall in a flattering shape over the hips. The deep V neckline at the back provides lots of interest.

There is a lot of hand-sewing in this dress, which combined with the beautiful silk fabric, is reflected in the price of the dress.

Skirt length 58cm.

Dry-clean only. Press using the silk setting on your iron.

See sizing chart for details of body measurements and how they relate to the dress.
