Silk Magenta Dress

While on a business trip I stopped into Thai Silks and picked up quite a few different kinds of silk fabrics.  The few I picked up were: 100% washed silk which has this matte finish ( Cobalt and Magenta) ,  4 ply crepe silk (white, red, and black stripe), floral silk + cotton (great for a shirt dress), and this Deep magenta/purple jersey knit silk (maxi skirt).

 4 ply crepe silk in white, black and red stripes, washed silk in Cobalt and Magenta, Floral silk + cotton, and jersey knit silk in purple

This simplistic Vogue pattern was great for a loud vibrant color. Here's a side note, boy oh boy, 100% silk feels wonderful against the skin.   

The following alterations were:

Instead of neck facing, created a 5” collar folded in half

Adding 3” to length of shirt

Adding 5” to separate hem then pleating

Exposed 9” pink zipper

 Exposed zipper with pink teeth
