Last night we celebrated at Canberra Frocktails, an event that saw some glamorous sewers from Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne join the CBR sewing crew for a night of fabric stroking, chatting and never ending (dangerously never ending) glasses of champagne. Was lovely to get together with friends, meet some new sewists and finally meet in person those who feel like old friends. For my frock I chose the relatively new dress from Papercut Patterns the Flutter Tunic.
The fabric suggestion is light to medium weight but I chose a textured heavy weight fabric that was labelled silk (but silly didn't write the name down), bought at Tessuti in Melbourne last year with Nici when I was down for the Jean Paul Gaultier exhibition. The underside is just a teensy bit scratchy so I underlined the bodice with a voile, which also meant that I didn't need to bind the neckline.
