Description

Oh how long i have waited to make a dress out of this fabric! Years! I bought this when i was in university back when i had no sewing fever in me. Its stretchy andthicker than usually but feels nice.

I made this for xmas party with my boyfriends family. But oh horror! I didnt have enough fabric and it came out little bit too short. ANd i’m not happy how the cleveage turned out. in corners. Too thick material i suppose. But now i know little trick called understiching and will try to save the dress some day.

Ladies and gentelmen! Big news! I am now a happy owner of a SERGER! I took out little bit of my savings and made this investement. Inside this dress is made using it. It looks so good!

On the pics red thread is for pattern lines because i wrote with a marker that disapearse after 24hours.

I skipped the sleeves :( I cut and sewed them together but they really were too too thick and i couldnt figure out how to put them on so….. But i reccomend to put them.

PS: the necklace is from NY i bought this spring. Broadway. It was crazy! Sooo many bling, so little money :(
