Description

This is from Vogue V1122 by Alice+Olivia.

I made this using a faux suede in brown with a slight mossy green undertone. It was not hard to make but the pleats were time consuming as I had to repeat the pleats in the lining. The sizing was again slightly big (it looks a little loose on the model) so I had to take it in in the back just a tiny bit.

I love this stylish dress. I made it super short so that I can wear it with my over-the-knee boots and I paired the dress with a double wrap skinny belt with gold detailing (you can’t really tell in the pictures).

    I LOVE FAUX SUEDE! Your color is beautiful, the styling is cool, and the neckline is especially nice.
