Description

I am in love with this dress! I used a gorgeous metallic animal printed brocade material from Oscar de la Renta that I ordered from MoodFabrics.com and red silk crepe de chine for the lining. Vogue 1434 pattern is what I cut this dress from. It’s a lovely pleated skirt dress, fully lined, with deep pockets and a matching sash. The pattern is designed by American Designer Isaac Mizrahi and is a fairly simple design. The pleats were the most time consuming, but so worth it! Happy Holidays and Happy New Year to all!
