I like Satsuki for it's simplicity and because it lends itself as a blank canvas for lots of fun, decorative and personalized techniques. Sophie's done just that by creating beautiful cutout lattice-work along the front and back neckline.  She's done such an amazing job! I thought it might inspire you to do something creative with your Satsuki or another dress pattern.  Thanks for sharing, Sophie!

Sallie wears her version of Satsuki


Sallie seems to have the midas touch. If you look around her blog, you'll see that everything she makes is gold! Even her amazing illustrations, holy moly, woman, UBER talanted!!! I really love this version of Satsuki, the silk has such a beautiful, dark smokiness to it, and a wonderful drape. I've become partial to this dress in black, and it's really nice to see such a lovely version, and such pretty photos! Take a look at Sallie's post on the dress too, it's a good laugh! (Thanks Jessica for pointing Sallie's blog out to me!)
