Description

I Left the Godet off the dress. original pattern did not sit on the shoulders well. I did make in muslin first, glad i did, needed to make adjustments on the bust/strap area so it wouldn’t slide off the shoulder. Very flattering dress on.

Material Notes

Found this fabric on etsy. woven design, thick black taffeta.

    Beautiful dress! I want to make the shorter cocktail version for a wedding I am going to in a couple weeks and in my researching I found your beautiful version :) Did you raise the neckline? In a lot of the versions the neckline seems a little low so I was thinking about raising it up. I really like how your neckline looks, did you use the original neckline or did you adjust it at all? Any help would be awesome, I am really excited about making this dress!
