Kuala Lumpur, Ma...
Drafted this princess line dress for a wedding dinner. While I was adjusting the fit, I thought hey the back looks kinda nice being opened, so I made the “collar” flaps for it in contrasting black. In hindsight, it would’ve been better if I had made the piece as a real collar piece instead of attaching it the faux way hee hee hee..
A plain dress like this might need more help in the accessorizing department so I made the sequinny foldover clutch to go with it.
On a not-so-separate note.. I am a pear-shaped person and I feel this single piece block dresses don’t really suit me that well as opposed to 2-piece dress blocks that are split at the waistline.. do any of you have this same thought as me, or am I just overthinking it? :-/
