dress burda 3/2008 mod.123

after a long time a new project!
the main fabric is a scalloped, bead and sequin embroidered lace (mesh) in beautiful dark turquoise, for the shift dress I used a matching light cotton.
Hard work, to cutting off the beads and sequins around the seams…
I shortened the skirt so its fits around my knees, the zipper I stationed in the side seam instead of the back middle, because I think it´s easier and fits better.
And beacause couldn´t wear a bra I stationed bra cups in inside the corset
I was so afraid to mess it up- because the fabric was very expensive-but it turned out very well and I´m very proud!
of course I wore it on a wedding

    Excellent outfit and you really have the reason to be proud both of your work and look!!! The cutting on the floor is my often way, too:))

    Absolutely stunning – you must be so proud of it. I love the use of the scalloped edge to form the cut out back bodice.
