this was a dress i made in coordination with the shirt i made for my husband, hence the similar colours.
i saw a picture of Kirsten Dunst wearing a dress like this, and decided that i HAVE to have it :D
so i made it…but a more simplified one, of course, cause i know my limitations as a beginner :p
this was made, again, without any pattern. i just started cutting, and sewing..
it took around 2 days to finish, and the most time was spent on sewing the beads & ribbons, cause i had to do it by hand.
i am SOOO pleased with how it turned out.
PS. please ignore the mess on the background of the pictures..as i said before, we were in a hurry to leave for a ballet performance, so we didn’t have time to think of the perfect background :D
Edit: hopefully the pictures work better this time :p
2-tone chiffon, chiffon, and satin as a lining.
myself, and the 2nd picture (of Kirsten Dunst) was from www.actressarchives.com
