Last weekend my husband and I performed a jive at a ballroom showcase and this is the dress I made for it. As usual I waited until the very last minute to even start it giving myself under a week to get it finished! Worked on it most evenings and got it completed in time for a dress rehearsal, Phew! I ended up adding an extra strap at the back as the shoulder strap kept falling down.
