I decided this past xmas to make a lot of my presents. Little did I know how much work it would all take, but this is one of them. I have a really good friend who just moved out to NYC and I’m pretty much the only one of her friends that exchanges gifts. Being single and available (gentlemen take note), I wanted her to have a fun little party dress for the holidays and new year! She’s got a more romantic flair, so I picked this really light, nudey, but shimmery fabric. Fits her perfectly, which is SUCH a relief :)
Not sure. Stretch cotton, but almost silky to the touch and heavier!
My friend Kim, who I wrapped up in duct tape to make my first dressform! As well as Gertie for the lovely variation of the Melissa, which is B-utiful~
