Description

I wanted to try out a dress with a front drape before I add the final drape details to my wedding dress, and to take a break from the wedding dress (the biggest project ever!), I made simplicity 2251 with contrasting fabrics.

I’m really happy with how it’s turned out – the fit is great, it’s comfortable to wear and above all I love the fabric! I can’t wait to wear this :D

    Great dress, that would also be a great way of using a silk remnant come to think of it… Love it!
