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!!
Hit the city streets in adventurous looks with utilitarian details like cargo pockets and belts.
Twists on feminine classics, like a bold patterned shift dress and pants with a racing stripe.
