This is the first project that I am actually proud of, I know it s not perfect and there is a lot to learn but still i think it s worth to share. It is an ivory dress made of a knit jersey fabric, it s really short, so not much is needed. For my height (154 cm) I got 140 cm of this fabric, a gold zipper (I believe a 10 cm one) and a suitable thread. Well You can see this fabric is a bit transparent so I ll soon try to add some lining or I ll just start over and do it double layered.
The dress is made of two parts – a top and a skirt- that are attached on the front with a twisted knot. To the top i used Burda`s retro pattern (Hungarian issue 2012/12) and to the bottom a regular tube skirt in my size. I added the zipper to the back of the skirt.
I was wondering if I should make a full back to the dress, but eventually I tried this version and I believe it gives a little spice to it! This color makes it elegant yet sexy and it s great with golden accessories!
Hope you like it!
