Colette

Wow...you did sew that up fast... and you made a beautiful and stylishly simple dress from it and it looks gorgeous on you. I hope that this too makes it's way onto the Flickr Tessuti Pool ...thank you for your earlier additions...

What a busy Saturday you must have had! It was so lovely to meet you in person and I'll be sure to keep in touch and let you know when the black graduated silk comes in again.

You look so stylish and stunning in that beautiful dress, no wonder you want some more of that fabric. I think you are the only person I know who has as many freckles as I do, how nice!

Julie

What a gorgeous dress. It looks exactly how you describe it. And I too have the same skin, freckles included.

Monika Aebischer

Al, this is stunning... I once had a silk little number like this and I can still remember how it felt worn directly on the skin... Couldn't get away with this style though... gotta have a way to hide them necessary bra straps... But my wedding gown last year was lined with silk satin (with the satin part against the skin), and there is nothing, absolutely nothing more comfortable in summer than pure silk...

michelle

That is really beautiful Al. The silk transforms that simple shape and gives it so much more definition. Love it!

Colette

Hi Alison,

Don't know if the girls from Surry Hills have rung to let you know that the grey colourway of the silk ombre is in store now? Thought I'd let you know just in case.

cheers
Colette

Leigh

Hi there,

I was looking up the book 'Robe Rouge' when i realised it was Chinese... is it easy to follow or does it require advanced dressmaking skills to understand the patterns? I'd be interested in getting it but if i'm not going to be able to understand it, it's a bit of a waste of shipping etc as I'm in the UK.

Many thanks,

Leigh
