Description

Dress made from Dolce & Gabbana-style fabric (I very much doubt it’s the real thing, but it looks like it!) using Vogue 1270, a Kay Unger pattern. Except that I wanted to skip the pleats and bow of the original, so my dress is made using the lining pattern pieces :). The dress is not perfect (it’s a bit too big, especially in the front neckline area) BUT I love it and am loving wearing it to work at least once a week.

More photos of the dress and D&G clothes, and more about the sewing itself over here on my blog.

    The dress has a very chic silhouette! I love the choice of fabric.

    Well done. :-)
