2m of black suiting
1m of sheer black fabric
It turned out fine though: I used a number 9 needle, matched the tension and sewed very slowly.
This is the first more fitting dress that I have made from the book and I found out that I'm a smaller size than previously thought- S. So I had to take in the side seems and redo the zip. I'll have to cut down the skirt pattern if I make the dress again.
Below is the original dress and the dress from the pattern book.
