I must confess that I am very proud of this dress. It’s my first dress and I’m only thirteen. I made it on the mannequin but I pass him myself. There is no thread hanging on it anymore and everything is nicely finished, because I’m quite a perfectionist. I have a purple satin-like fabric used, a purple zipper and a lot of bias tape, even purple of course. It was also the first time I used a zipper. Throughout the dress is about 3.5 meters fabric. Unfortunately I do not have a gala to wear it but making it was very nice too. I think I worked about a week on it. I hope you like it!
