Mia’s International Intrigue II

If there is one thing we are used to in the workroom, it is a student showing up with something like this:
“I’ve been invited to a formal wedding in Shanghai in two months!  Can we get a dress made?”

Sometimes it doesn’t work out, but this time everything came together perfectly.

Mia used Butterick #4343 in a silk noile with silk charmeuse lining.  It turned out great!

This was right before we made a final pressing and set the hem, but overall it is a good pattern if you want an interesting fitted one-shoulder dress with princess seams.

We are still waiting for pics from the wedding.  As soon as she gets them to us, we’ll post those as well.


The first of the wedding pics is here!  Here is a good time being had in a dress made at Tchad!
