Couple of weeks ago, I celebrate my 40´s and I made a pink and black bags and shoes party. I wanted my dress to be special in the same theme color. I had this pattern in mind since it was released, a remake from a cocktail party dress from Burda 1958, released on Burda magazine Nov 2007. Dragon sleeves were so difficult considering I dont speak the instruction language, so I decided to made them my way following the numbers. The fabric was really easy to work with and the colors were perfect. I found the perfect pair of shoes in the same color. I made an addition, with the drapping on the waist, added a vintage sort of pin.
I also made a peticoat in black tulip, really easy and make the dress this puffy effect. Love the outcome!
