Bow Neckline in Turquoise

Added Jun 30, 2013

I so love the colour turquoise, it is a lovely shade of blue and it is a colour that is so fitting for spring/summer. I use the famous dress style from the magazine 02/2011.

I modified it by not using a gathered skirt but instead a pleated flare skirt with pockets. I place bows along the front and back neckline to created impact. I created 12 bows and then pair them in twos and place then strategically around the neckline. The bows were a little time consuming but it was well worth it because I so love my dress.

What do you think? Are you loving it too?

    Really lovely Kisses. You look great in every colour but I think turquoise looks the best. I love the bows at the neckline and I think they were well worth the extra effort. I made this dress last year but I have since completely unpicked and remade it and like you, pleated onto the waist, the skirt. I also piped the neckline and armholes as they began to gape. I am very happy that I spent all that time doing so as it was a total waste of gorgeous fabric in a dress that I wouldn’t wear.
