I can never find a dress off the rack to flatter my curves so in search of a cocktail dress I turned to my fabric stash and dress patterns for something quick and easy to make. The shocking pink silk fabric needed to be dialed down and I chose a less obvious olive to pair it with in the lining and a simple silhouette to keep it fairly uncomplicated.
I used New Look 6575, but flared the neckline by about 12 inches* to open it up and show the olive colour as a detail. (*edited 11/1/10)
