well i’ve had this dress cut out since last november lol, i just never got round to sewing it up. I needed a blinging dress for our zumba xmas party so i decided to sew it uo and hope it looked ok. It was quite a challenge as the suggested fabrics where velvet satin and jersey. i decided to use fishscale fabric, its heavy like chain mail but sparkles like mad. i lost count of how many needles i broke and i had to do quite a bit of hand sewing on this. I’m so happy with this dress and quite a few woman said my dress was the nicest at the do!! very flattering considering there where over a hundred ladies there lol x
. i blinged up my shoes to match as well x
fishscale sequin fabric and beige jersey for the lining
