Description

I was commissioned to make a dress for a client going to her brother’s wedding. She wanted a short dress, retro style and one shoulder so this is what i came up with and she loves it :)
(gosh, thank god for that..)
It’s a quite thick matt satin fabric, fitted and kneelength dress…
Made from a variety of patterns and improvising!

    Gorgeous! Was your material knit? I’ve been looking for a one shoulder dress pattern for some geometric cotton fabric I have – what type of patterns did you mash together to make this, cause it is pretty much exactly what I’d like to make (just encase I also have to make the pattern from others)
