Description

First dress in my life, I’m so proud! And it wasn’t as hard as it seems to be! Perfect for all day [and night!] by the pool or beach. I bought some navy blue fabric – georgette, big golden zipper and some transparent lace with roses. No pattern was used, I simply started to sew. It’s short dress with cuffs and underbust tunnel to tie a bow [there is a belt from bright purple georgette in this tunnel]. I also made a brooch from red zipper. Comfortable and stylish at the same time- my wardrobe needed it!!:D

    I really love the lace section, and you look so cute in it- Also, I am curious as to how you assembled the zipper brooch? I love that too!
