The following photos are from www.style.com for the Calvin Klein Fashion show S2006RTW.
The fabric: I had saved the above pictures in my look book of absolute favourites, so I was very excited when Colette showed a sneak peek of this fabric on her blog. I was even more excited when a panel of this fabric made its way to me. It is a floaty chiffon, and I was a little worried that I would lose it in my stash, so I have been keeping it in my underwear drawer. As much as I loved the above pictures, I wasn't sure how much I would wear a silk, floaty dress (life with kids is a little rough and tumble). One panel was the perfect amount to make a camisole, so I went with that instead.
The pattern: "Age of Innocence" from Twinkle Sews. The pattern was designed for 2 contrasting knits, but apart from that little detail, it was remarkably similar to what I was wanting. Read my pattern review for details on sewing up this pattern.
I printed out the pattern and sticky-taped all the bits together. I lay the fabric on top of the pattern and then cut out the pattern and the fabric at the same time, to prevent the chiffon from shifting around whilst I was cutting it. In the next photo, you can see that the fabric is sheer enough that I could see the pattern through it when cutting.
You can also see that I centred the dots...resulting in a lovely big, green dot right on my belly button!
The bubble hem silhouette may take some getting used to.
