Cocktail gown: skirt and blouse

It all started with the inspiration from the spanish design TOT-HOM skirt. At the first I tried to make it similar with the front fold and bow, but it didn’t look very well on the client, so we decided to remake another muslin with two side folds and bow which is sewn in the front darts. Then I found the similar pattern in Burda magazine (year 2007) which I used as a basic pattern with my own alterations: I rised the waist line, removed pockets and front wrap transpormed in a one peace detail.

Of course we needed also the blouse, so we found the designer pattern from Burda 11/2013 suitable for this kind of skirt with high waisted line because of the main accent – sleeves!

The pictures are not as good as I would like for presenting my creations, but try to enjoy them and please leave any comments if you have ones!
