Description

I made this dress a couple of years ago and found it the other day when i was sorting my dresses , they’re everywhere lol. I saw a dress in a magazine and fell in love with it. I googled it and it was a lot of money so i decided to have a go myself. I used this burda pattern so i could use the panals for the gold sectiion and i think it worked.. I added a black strip down the centre then rouched it. Its unlined as i never lined dresses then. I made a black slip instead to wear under it. I also made it in green and black and loved it until i saw the photos?? I looked like a sweetie wrapper lol this one i like though x

Material Notes

Metallic lycra and jersey

      Thank you, i can’t wait to see yours now. Thered something so dressy about gold. I’m making a kimono jacket at the moment in a mystery.gold fabric? It was suposed to be jersey but its like a faux leather cardboard mix lol. It was cheap and would’ve cost to much to return it on ebay!! It is a smashing colour though and will be waterproof which helps here lol x

    Wow, Mary! You look wonderful! Metallics aren’t flash friendly. I’m sure you didn’t look like a sweetie wrapper in person. Did I mention your fabulous legs? ;-))

    Very chic dress, Mary – black and gold combine greatly. I think the black stripe in the centrre is good finding for svelte silhouette. You look nice.
