I made this dress for my Sisters birthday party, (won’t mention how old she is) but It’s a big number!
Theme of party was 60’s. We’ve always been into the 60’s, being a mod from way back..
She had sourced a photo of a B&W dress and asked if I could replicate it and being a good sister that I am, I did just that!!
It wasn’t easy, since she lives in another state. It was a bit of toeing and froing; all in all it came out quite well, but could do with a bit more ease around the bust. Hard not to be critical of your work and majority of the time most people don’t notice what you see, anyways….
