Description

My inspiration came from the raglan cut and the fabrics I had in my stash.
I eliminated the sleeves and collar and really kept it simple. I cut out the front and back panels, raised both and sewed them together at the shoulders. I used the all in one facing how to (very helpful!). I chose a fabric that drapes well and added a weaved ribbon at the neckline and under the bust. It can be worn with the weaved ribbon like a belt at the waist line or without it.

Material Notes

sheer black veil with velvet flowers surrounded by silver glitter lined with smooth white lycra (hemmed with lace) and a weave for the belt.

    Beautiful job on the Malissa!! Mine looks like a pregnancy dress for the winter, like it much better without the sleeves & collar!!

    This is a great transformation of the Malissa. It really nails the cocktail style. I’d make this version.
