Pink Satin Dress

Added Jun 24, 2011

by Rika Daniel

Pekanbaru, Riau,...






Satin is a BIG deal for me. Cutting was not a trouble, but sewing was really a mess. I used the wrong needle and the fabric crinkled. Thought I bought suitable needle, it keep crinkling, and when I sewn the gathered skirt, I broke the needle twice..sigh. Although, it took extra time to sew it, I am quite happy with the result.

Actually, I want to make this dress comfy for working at office as well as for casual occasion, but I think it turned out too glamorous. Do you think is it “too much” for office attire? hahaha..yes, of course! :D

    i really like the detailed ribbon trim. This looks harder than a “novice” project! :)

    This is the perfect dress for work if your job is at Buckingham Palace! : ) Glad you were able to figure out the needle problems. Nice work.

    Cute! Yes, probably a little too dressy for office, but it’s beautiful, and looks great on you too!
