My "Disappointment" Dress

Added Oct 7, 2012

This mixture of black and grey stretchy dress fabric was in my stash and I wanted to make nothing more than a dress out of it. A very simple style came to mind, so I went ahead with the execution. I am so very disappointed with the result. The elasticity in the dress stretch too much and gives it a bulky look.

The dress has a v neckline at the front and back. The front has pleats at the waistline and the back has a zipper. The shoulder is cut all in one to give the illusion of a sleeve. I used a black chiffon ruffled trimming at the front neckline to add a little drama.

Absolutely no pattern was used in this construction and it took me roughly three hours to make even though I am not very pleased with the outcome I still decided to share it.

Material Notes

1 1/4 stretch matte

    Hi! You may be disappointed but I’m not. I’m glad you posted it and I think the overall concept is GREAT ! Despite the imperfections, when I scrolled down to the 3rd picture, (the one of you wearing it), I immediately thought, “STUNNING !”. I hope you are not being too hard on yourself. WOW !!!! Please, keep it coming !!!!!
