I found this lovely fabric and contrast it with an awesome green to make it into a winning dress.
I got the inspiration from using the simplicity 2588 bodice as the base of my dress, I just then added the idea of the peplum as to make the dress pop. To make the peplum I cut a flare skirt with pleats by making the back taller than the front. I attached it both at the side and back seams. I completely lined the peplum so has to make it look expensive
I am not really a fan of shiny fabric so I use the wrong side as the right side instead of how the fabric originally stay.
Overall I am so excited about the finish result that I wore it today at church. I feel so richly blessed
