Description

A version of New Look 6723 in emerald green taffeta, with a yellow satin lining on the bodice. I really enjoyed making this dress, and I’m going to wear it out for my birthday next month! It’s a little tight on the bodice but I’m losing weight so should be fine for February (I hope!). There’s a few mistakes, and I took some of the poofiness out of the skirt as I thought the gathering didn’t look too good, but overall I’m happy with how it looks and it was super easy to make.

Material Notes

Emerald green taffeta, yellow satin, green thread, zipper

    This is really pretty on you and I like that you took some of the fullness out of the skirt, it is super flattering!
