Leslie had July and August covered with 2 summer dresses!

Hi, here are two summer dresses recently finished – I love them and the fabric!

The first is vogue 1228 in Rachel rayon satin, lined in bemberg. The fabric has a beautiful drape.

The second is vintage vogue 8973 in challis; I interlined/lined the bodice (after pleating the challis) in silk organza and bemberg, and left the skirt unlined. The fabric was terrific for pleating and has the perfect weight.     Leslie W
