Description

This is what I made on Saturday. It took me the whole afternoon to sew it, but luckily I got it finished just in time, and wore it in the evening.
I’ve also made the headpiece by myself.
No pattern was used.

Material Notes

Dress: a bit elastic, black fabric and buttons
Headpiece: white cotton, pearls, lace, satin ribbon and a tiny cameo.

Difficulty

Novice

I was inspired by a dress I saw in a blog called Sally Jane Vintage (http://sallyjanevintage.blogspot.com/2007/09/i-found-this-dress-at-fairfax-flea.html)

    This is very nice. The oversized bow really makes it. How did you make that look so classy?

    This is a beautiful dress and I can’t believe you did it without a pattern! I have something similar sketched out to make. You just inspired me to move forward on it :)
