I totally feel and look confident in this feminine dress. It is very ideal and professional for work and it screams business like from beginning to the end. The style is from the July 2011 issue, the V neck LBD dress. I started this dress in August, put it done and have finish up a number of other projects before completing this one. I am so happy that I finish this dress and I so love it.
The fabric is pinstripe so I use a white leather to highlight the white in the fabric. The inserts and pockets are leather. I tried out the embroidery knot stitch tutorial for the first time to add the decorative touch. I lined the entire dress to give body because the fabric is sort of lightweight.
The technique for the stitch is found at: http://www.burdastyle.com/techniques/embroidery-knot-stitch
