Ok, it’s not Prada. But the material is (from my material-heaven where they sell designer remnants).
I based it on my cowl-neckline-top but changed the sleeve-openings to cap-sleeves. I added instructions on how to make that change to my Cap Sleeve Cowl Test-run and linked it here.
I called it my dance dress because the first time I wore it was to my friend’s birthday-party with african dancing-dance-teachers (we danced all night, it was great!) and the second time was to a Ryksopp concert (where they were accompanied by Robyn. hm, they are scandinavian musicians so you mightn’t know them but it’s great dance/club-music) followed by clubbing at my friend’s club. So it’s well danced after only two nights out.
However, I don’t recommend making dancing-dresses in 100% wool. Steaming. I guess I’m going to have to make another one in cotton…
The mean smile must stem from the fact that the devil wears Prada, oh my…
