This will be the sleeveless dress with the asymmetrical faux-closure from February's Burda. I'm making it from turquoise wool crepe, which will be underlined with silk organza. The bodice lining is the China silk print and the skirt will be lined with slipperier Bemberg.
Since taking this photo, I finished basting the underlining in place and construction has begun.

I'm making the top from a silk and linen blend (70-30%) fingering weight yarn, which I ordered from ColourMart. Oh my, if you are a knitter, you should check out the CM site! They have lots of really luxurious yarns (cashmere, fine merino, silk etc.) for very down-to-earth prices. Four cones, each about 500 metres of 100% silk yarn for $22 (shipping included), were delivered to my door on Friday.
