Description

I made this dress for a class in school. I was suposed to be inspired by the fabric, so I picked a really crazy print a made a simple knee lenght cocktail summer dress with a black leather belt tied to the waist. It has 4 darts (Front/back) plus the bust darts. The facing goes from neck line to the waist. I thought of the difficulty for the one wearing the dress to wear a bra, so the long facing serves a lining and gives body to the garment where it is needed. I serged the seams.

Material Notes

Strechy tweed / poly/cotton blend thread.

Difficulty

Novice

    very nice. I think it would look even more elegant in a simple, deep purple. But love the print anyway. :)

    I think the fabric is just great with the style lines… it really would make someone look slim and trim!
