No doubt my hardest, longest project ever!!! I made it for a school assignment.
This dress was a first for many things:
→ using chiffon
→ using boning
→ fully lining a dress
→ sewing a blind hem
→ beading (the lines on the shoulder flower, NOT the waistband. I bought that ready made)
I’m so happy with it mostly because of the fit! I have never really successfully sewed a strapless without having staying-up issues later, but this one fits like a charm and I never have to ‘fix myself’, if ya know what I mean ;)
chiffon, crepe satin, gold beaded waistband, gold beads, boning, lining
