Midnight Blue evening gown

Sheffield, Unite...






My first ever long dress that I have ever made. I only swore once while making this dress and trust me I didn’t find it easy because I wanted it to be prefect for my nieces Prom. I promised to make her a prom dress one night when I had too much to drink and then had to stick to my promise. Really enjoyed it in the end. I am so proud of how it turned out

    Looks great! Also the colour! Wish I could make one, but not really have the skills yet.

      Thank you for your kind words. Trust me if I can do it you can. I’m a norvis and have only been sewing since last year, it’s all just trile and error. Go for it x
