For those of you who saw the multi-way Periwinkle Pouf silk blouse that was my March splurge -- I knew I had to have a dress "sibling" made. I had a few Peri haters IRL but they are much more fond of Peacock. I figure it's a bonus if I sway a few YLFers.
The right fabric in my colors finally turned up -- a silk Haute Hippie print (thanks 40% off coupon) with crazy, randomly-sized peacock feathers. I think my sewist did an AMAZING job working with the pattern placement.
[I believe all my other print items are small with a regular repeat, so this is way out of the box, ha.]
To address some of the less-than-perfect issues with Peri, I had a fair bit of volume taken out. On the downside, fewer gathers. On the plus, a bit easier to manage on my frame.
