Natty's Party Dress

Added Feb 8, 2009

by nattyjane

Berkeley, Califo...






I absolutely love how this dress turned out. I followed the how to for the bust of the heat dress for the top, but otherwise came up with the design as I went along. The zipper color doesn’t quite match because I originally planned on using a different fabric. I came across this fabric for just a few dollars at the White Elephant sale in Oakland and knew it would be great for this dress. I also made a bow headband to match. Now all I need is a party to wear it to.

Material Notes

Floral print fabric, 9 inch zipper.

    I absolutely love this! And the fabric’s so nice. I’ve been experimenting with the ‘bust of the heat dress’ and will hopefully develop it into my own dress too.

    I just love the fabric you’ve chosen! I want to make one with straps, too. Can’t take my eyes off it. Great work (-:

    What a lovely dress ! The neckline and straps are so flattering on you. Such pretty fabric and I must echo the above poster who said the contrasting zip works well – I love the contrasting zip detail.

    Love it, the shape really suits you and the fabric is really nice too, i think the contrasting colour zip works really well, although not intended!!
