Ivory Twisted Knot Dress

Added Apr 30, 2013

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!

All opinion and advice is welcome!!

    I love that u kept the back open. The twist in front of the waist is super cute too. The fabric is a little sheer, but there’s always ways to fix that! Would be cute in black too :)

      Thank You!
      Yes there are a few things to fix, and was definitely thinking about a different color. I actually put some lining in the skirt part and it gave the dress a better look still I ll start over and try to make it perfect!! :)
