This is the plus size variation on the gown that Nora wore to the Bambi Awards. After the reaction to the original Nora dress, it was obvious there was no use making you wait while we sewed it up, we had to give you the pattern now! Though the photos are the same, the pattern is sized differently. The underskirt peaks out from center front and at the hem, the embroidered detail frames the face as fit for queen, and the curved seaming adds extra couture touch. Just in time for Prom season, we can’t wait to see your creations.
