San Pedro De Mon...
This is a dress for a most beautifull 17 years old girl. It is not what I am used to do, because this is a dress made in a day including the pattern. Just so so simple, but I think that very nice for a special evening. I wash the cotton lace before making it, and…thanks God!!!! it shrank so much!!!! and the lining is a gold like lurex type of fabrick that I was able to get in a retail store and that was the last piece, It has a princess cut and I work the 2 materials toguether, and left a bit of lthe lace alone on the hem line so there is the same transparency that in the unlined sleeves. Finishes where done with a simple cotton lace by the yard, and….that was it!!!! the neckline at the front and back has been treated like a swiming costume, with elastic to keep everything in place and has no facings. It really came out nicer that I spect it,!!!!
Plan a weekend getaway in these sweater dresses and furry accessories.
