For my graduation fashion show a few weeks ago, I designed 3 nightgowns, all black and white.
This one was the second one out, with 13 horizontal sections alternating color and growing in shape (this model was also too short, but the dress fit perfectly on her and I didn’t want to make any big alterations on this one).

This dress was a true test for my abilities and patiences, drafting the pattern was a hassle (I drafted it 3 different times and made 5 before the real thing). Making all the lines match perfectly on the pattern while moving all the darts sideways, and then sewing them perfectly was a big long headache…but I love the result.

I also made the accessories: a black sequined clutch, and yellow matte glass necklace and pair of bracelets.

Material Notes

For the dress, black and white satin crepe, interfacing, invisible zipper.

For the accessories, black acetate lining, black sequins, purse closuring thingie, yellow matte crystal, clasps, nylon thread.
