Piet Retief, Sou...
This dress is based on the previous green dress that I made using the 07/2011 V-neck LBD #110 pattern from Burda.
I used the original bodice and made it a peplum top. The pencil skirt at the bottom is not in any way tied to the peplum top. So this outfit is very versatile, as you can wear both pieces separately or together as a dress.
I used black leather and a sort of woven fabric that I bought for R45 at work. The fabric is actually for upholstery, but I loved the charcoal colour and the woven texture. The fabric gave the dress a good structured form.
I stitched the zipper on top of the fabric, because i was scared that the fabric would be too thick for a hidden zipper and that it would not lie down nicely.
In the end I think the zipper adds to the whole dramatic feel of the dress.
