Little Gray Dress

Added Aug 16, 2010

by apfelbluete

Duesseldorf, Ger...






I made this dress for my special girlfriend who lives 9.000 km away from me.
I only had her weight and my dress form Gladys …
She sent me the fabric. Thus, this fabric has made a journey from afar Kasakhstan to Germany and back.
The dress is completly with lining.
The belt with bow I made, following the example from my project “Parisian Chic”.
The dress is based on a New Look pattern 6749th
This pattern, I would not really recommend as a basis for any further project.
I had to change very much, to achieve a good fit.

Material Notes

Strech Wool, Lining, Zipper, grosgrain ribbon




Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter
Bridal, Business, Classic, Evening Wear

    I’d like to change the title to “Gorgeous Gray Dress”! What a lovely creation, is this you or your friend modeling? It’s such a great fit.
