The lovely paisley fabric is from the bag of fabric that was given to me by a family friend. Talk about the gift that goes on giving! I’m unsure what it is, possibly silk or a polyester impostor posing as silk.
I happened to be making a Whisky and Dark Chocolate Tart for my husband’s birthday at the time I was making this dress and I thought it was a suitable name for the dress, the colours certainly made me think of whisky and dark chocolate – yum!
I love the finished result on, it’s easy and stylish and, I think, very flattering too. However it doesn’t photograph very well so I’ve included two action shots: #1 is no makeup, in the kitchen but I think a better feel for the dress; #2 is makeup and better lighting with no distracting background, but possibly not the most indicative of the dress.
