I found this fabric a couple of months ago and knew it would make a perfect holiday dress! When Burdastyle came out with their holiday dress patterns I saw the metallic dress pattern and had to try it out. It was definitley a challenge for me as I am new to sewing and haven’t had any experience with draping. But I love love love how it turned out! When I first made the dress I had planned to make it cap sleeve like the pattern picture showed.. but after trying it on I thought the 3/4 length sleeve was more fitting for a winter dress. I also made it a little more modern by shortening it just a bit. All in all it was an incredible opportunity for me to expand my sewing skills and I have already gotten several compliments on my new holiday dress!! Hoping to find a few more reasons to wear it out:)
Below are a couple of pictures of the dress during the sewing process and then as the final product!!
Flirty dresses, a cropped cami, and glam trousers for modern flappers.
