Description

I had a love hate relationship with Purple after I used it as one of the colors for our wedding, so I kind of OD on it. So finally I am starting to love it again, as a first step I decided to make a dress =] You can see the whole story and more pics in my blog

For the top I used the Strapless Tea Length Gown pattern, but altered to be smaller and gathered in the front, for the bottom I just added the ruffles on a circle skirt I cut out of left over fabric.

    I love ruffles (but I don’t really wear them) and I love your dress.

    usually, I hate ruffles, they are to barbiegirly and sometimes hide a women’s curves too much. But really, you made me love them! Your dress is adorable. I would wear it for my sister’s wedding, my best friend’s wedding, christmas, new years day, my graduation, my first job interview, my birthday, my best friend’s birthday,….. any day :)
