My sister-in-law got married this December and thinking that it’ll be on a hot Sydney summer day, I decided to go sleeveless.
Originally envisioned a one shoulder dress in nude color, but both the color and neckline style changed. When I found out that the bridesmaids would be wearing a nude coloured dress, I had to look for another color; thus, this somewhat pearlish-purple color. Also ended up to be strapless after failing to draft a one-shoulder bodice (I do not want to buy a new pattern).
First time to try my hand on using boning. Also made the earring and bracelet that I wore with the dress. 4th photo is the beading I did on the lace. 5th photo is my sketch of the original design.
