Drop-waisted Gatsby dress

Added Feb 15, 2014

Plymouth, United...






I’ve had this lace for ages! I got it in New York last May and thought it would make a glamourous evening dress. I plan to wear this on my 16th birthday… which is a couple of months away, but at least I’m prepared!!
It has an boned strapless beige underlay, which I have added as a separate project (cause it also looks nice on its own).

Material Notes

Lace main fabric
Duchess satin underlay




Garment Type

    Beautiful – a dropped waist is always tricky to pull off but you’ve done it perfectly.
