Credit crunch Party Dress Silver/Blue

Added Nov 30, 2008

Portsmouth, Unit...






I’ve just finished this dress ready for a party this weekend. I love the fabric which is viscose and quite heavy and not slippery so very easy to sew. The colour grades from light grey to dark blue. The pattern is a Simplicity – Project Runway one. The sleeves originally had deep cuffs on, but i unpicked them as it looked a bit strange, and I just put elastic in the sleeves to gather them.

Material Notes

Viscose, bought on ebay for approx £6.





Patterns Simplicity Project runway. These patterns are great as there are always lots of variations included…sleeves, necklines ete.

    Rather lush for credit crunch time! Grey is the colour of austerity but I just love it!

    I love the fabric (mind telling me the name of the seller?), and I think you chose the right pattern for it, simple and classy, and you also realized it well. You look beautiful!
