Nhi made a fuchsia Fuchsia! It is so gorgeous and wonderful party wear. She added an lacey, scalloped exposed zipper to the back that looks so cute. See for yourself!

Nhi did not change the zipper from a side zip to a back zip. She just top stitched on the exposed zipper for the fun of it! The fabric is a fuchsia polyester satin and Nhi used a lot of starch to work it into shape to hold the pleats. It was definitely a challenge and helped us learn a lot about using different fabrics for this pattern.

  1. This is so adorable! Sadly, I haven’t had time to do the sew-along (or ANY sewing for that matter!) but it’s on my list. Keep up the good work and keep those patterns coming!
