This dress was made for a night out on the town to celebrate the New Year. The design is from Stephanie O one of her latest designs. Stephanie O designs for women who wants to feel and look great in what they wear.
It is completely lined with cut outs in the back, bust darts, midriff and zipper at side with an hook and eye closure in the back. Had this grey and white knit fabric and was determined to get the look. The knit was very challenging to work with because the least little thing that touches it, the fabric will draw up. I totally handle it with care and the look really paid off.
Did I feel and look great like Stephanie O said I would?? Yes, indeed. It was well worth my time :-)
