hello. I’ll share picures of a dress I made for my friend Fran because she had a wedding past weekend and asked me to do her dress.
this is the first time I make a dress for someone that isn’t me, so i was nervous about it but after I finished it i was so pleased with the result.
making the dress wasn’t easy at all but im very happy with the result.
I wanted to do a sweetheart neckline and i remember that i saw several proyects here based on (afternoon) teatop and maryy dress so I took the bust of the maryy pattern and added to the idea of this dress.
it took me about a 5 days to finish it because I wanted it to have a perfect fit.
anyway I hope you’ll like it… I had fun AND she loved it.
we picked the perfect fabric, a purple chantu fabric and for the lining we picked a violet sargalina fabric.
