I'm not sure it's real tweed (okay, I'm pretty sure it isn't Wink) but it's a quite heavy fabric and perfect for a dress to wear in the winter. Also it has my absolute favorite color in it which is the cerise-pinkish one.
The pattern is from a Burda magazine, but I lightly altered the neckline to make it more open. My real pride and joy of this dress though, is the invisible zipper in the back, it's the first time I've done one and I'm ridiculously proud of the result.

Back (and notice the zipper!):

It looks very nice. The fabric is interesting... And the lenght of the skirt is great- just above the knee Smiley Well done!

This is adorable, great job! My first attempt at an invisible zipper was... not cute.

I'm frightened by the devil, and I'm drawn to those ones who ain't afraid.
