Bubblefish Dress

I found this fabric on a fabricmarket and immediately fell in love with. First I thought of making a skirt from it, because it was just one meter. But than I decidet to take a very siple dress pattern and alter the sidedarts to little pleats at the necline. As a special fiture I took some chiffon left over and ad it at the hem.
Because the fabric is elastic, I did not need to put in a zipper…

    Wow, what a find, I really like that you went with a beautiful but simple dress, it really shows off the fabric and I bet it looks great on.

    This is really unique! I like the pleats at the neck, and the fish and saltwater pearls complete the theme! Nice work!

      Thank you. I just had the idea to put some pleats at the neck, to make it look more intresting.
      The necklace I made my self too. Just bought hire my supplies… All in all, the necklace was very reasonable.

    Oooooo….nice. I’d love to find some fabric like.

    Do the sleeves have the chiffon finish as well? It is hard to see.
