With all the recent talk of peplums, I was inspired to pull this dress out of the closet.
It is my wearable muslin of this formal dress. I fell in love with the pattern on the Eva Dress website, and decided I just had to have my own.
The original instructions were missing, so it was also an easy way to test out any construction issues that I might have.
Turns out, my "muslin" is one of my favorite dresses.
I normally wear this dress in the early Fall, and have no need of a coat. But I love the way this coat works with the dress. Happy coincidence!
